Short-Term Research Training Fellowships

Last update: Friday, 27 Feb 2015 at 17:49


The European Respiratory Society (ERS) is providing an excellent opportunity for young scientists and clinicians in the early stages of their research career in respiratory medicine, the Short-Term Research Training Fellowships. The programme provides a way to its participants to visit a Host Unit in a European country other than the candidate’s own, with the aim of learning a research technique not available in the Home Unit.

To be enabled to participate, the candidate must be fluent in the language of the selected country, in order to permit an effective communication in the work environment. As a minimum requirement, applicants need to have graduated with an MD, MSc or equivalent at the time of the application. Postgraduate scientists active in any field related to respiratory science such as immunologists, biologists, geneticists, pharmacologists, biophysicists, chemists, etc. involved in respiratory science, as well as applicants who are qualified healthcare professionals (non-MD) working in respiratory health/medicine (nurses, physiotherapists, respiratory function technologists, allied respiratory professionals, etc.) are entitled to apply for an ERS Short-Term Fellowship. The programme is open to both European and non-European candidates and has a project duration of 1 to 3 months. Also, the total ERS grant amount should cover travel and accommodation costs and provide enough money to live on during the Fellowship.

The next deadlines to apply are first April and first October. Don't waste this chance of being engaged in an international level project. For more information, click here.
