Wellcome Trust-MIT Postdoctoral Fellowships now open

The Wellcome Trust, in conjunction with the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), is offering opportunities for early-career researchers to carry out interdisciplinary research at MIT.

Wellcome Trust-MIT Postdoctoral Fellowships provide four years of support, with the first two to three years at MIT in the USA, followed by the remaining one to two years at a UK institution. Fellows are expected to tackle important biomedical research questions and undertake an interdisciplinary training programme.

Applications are encouraged from biomedical scientists with an interest in training in new approaches/technologies, or from candidates trained in disciplines outside the biomedical sciences who plan to apply their expertise to biomedical problems.

The application deadline is 12 July 2013.
