Marie Sklodowska-Curie Individual Fellowships for International Researchers, 2015

Applications are available for individual fellowships to support individual researchers at postdoctoral level and beyond to work on a research project of their own design. Two types of fellowships will be awarded i.e. European Fellowships (between 12 and 24 months) and Global Fellowships (between 24 and 36 months). The financial support for Marie Sklodowska-Curie IFs takes the form of a grant covering up to 100% of the costs. Funding is calculated exclusively based on the unit costs set out in the work programme. European Fellowship takes place in EU Member States (MSs) or Associated Countries (ACs) and the Global Fellowships start with a significant period spent at a partner organisation located outside of Europe and concludes with a mandatory return phase in Europe.

Study Subject(s): All fields may be funded – that advances researchers’ careers.
Course Level: Fellowship supports individual researchers at postdoctoral level and beyond to work on a research project of their own design.
Scholarship Provider:
 Marie Sklodowska-Curie
Scholarship can be taken at: European Fellowship takes place in EU Member States (MSs) or Associated Countries (ACs) and the Global Fellowships start with a significant period spent at a partner organisation located outside of Europe and conclude with a mandatory return phase in Europe.

Eligibility:
European Fellowships:
-The researcher must be an Experienced Researcher: s/he must, at the deadline for the submission of proposals, be in possession of a doctoral degree or have at least four years of full-time equivalent research experience (as described under Definitions).
-The researcher may be of any nationality.
-The researcher must move or have moved (transnational mobility) from any country to the MS or AC where the beneficiary is located.
Global Fellowships:
-The researcher must be an Experienced Researcher as described under Definitions.
-The researcher must be national or long-term resident of a MS or AC as described under Definitions.
-The researcher must move or have moved (transnational mobility) from any country to the partner organisation located in the TC. The researcher must comply with the GF mobility rule as described under Definitions.

Scholarship Open for International Students:  Researchers of any nationality can apply for these Marie Curie Fellowships. However, the Global Fellowships and the Reintegration Panel of the European Fellowships are restricted to nationals or long-term residents of Member States or Associated Countries. Long-term residents are defined as researchers who spent a period of full-time research activity of at least five consecutive years (without breaks in research) in one or more Member States or Associated Countries.

Scholarship Description: Marie Sklodowska-Curie Individual Fellowships (IF) aim at enhancing the creative and innovative potential of Experienced Researchers who wish to diversify their individual competence in terms of skill acquisition through advanced training, international and inter-sectoral mobility. Individual Fellowships thus provide opportunities to acquire and transfer new knowledge and to work on research in a European context (EU Member States and Associated Countries) or outside Europe. This scheme particularly supports the return and reintegration of researchers from outside Europe who have previously worked here. It also develops or helps to restart the careers of individual researchers that show great potential, considering their experience.

Number of award(s):  Not Known

Duration of award(s):  The duration for European Fellowships (standard EFs, CAR and RI multi-disciplinary panels) is between 12 and 24 months. For the Global Fellowships there is a first outgoing phase between 12 and 24 months and an additional mandatory 12 months return phase, so the total duration of this type of fellowship is between 24 and 36 months.

What does it cover?  The financial support for Marie Sklodowska-Curie IFs takes the form of a grant covering up to 100% of the costs. Funding is calculated exclusively based on the unit costs set out in the work programme.
The European Union contribution and rates under this action are set out in Part 3 of the Work Programme 2014-2015 and cover:
-the recruitment of the researcher to be trained;
-research, training and networking costs;
-management and indirect costs.

Selection Criteria:  Each proposal will be assessed independently by at least three experts chosen by the REA from the pool of experts taking part in this evaluation. An expert will be designated as the proposal “rapporteur” and will assume additional responsibilities at the end of this phase and in the following phases of the evaluation session. The proposal will be evaluated against the IF evaluation criteria applying weighting factors, both set out in the Work Programme. Proposals will not be evaluated anonymously. Proposals may be evaluated remotely. Evaluation scores will be awarded for each of the three criteria. All of the separate elements of each criterion will be considered by the experts in their assessment. An example of the evaluation forms that will be used by the experts in this call will be made available on the Participant Portal.

Notification:  Applicants will be notified in February 2016.

How to Apply:  Proposals must be submitted electronically, using the European Commission’s Online Submission Service (SEP), by the supervisor. Proposals must be submitted on or before Thursday 10 September, 17:00:00 Brussels time. It is your responsibility to ensure the timely submission of your proposal. To avoid being late and miss the deadline, you should submit your proposal in SEP as soon as possible since any other successive submission overwrites the previous version. In the very unlikely event of a failure of the SEP service during the last 24 hours of this call, the deadline can be extended by a further 24 hours. Such a failure is extremely rare and exceptional. Therefore do not assume that there will be an extension.

Scholarship Application Deadline:  The application deadline is 10 September 2015.

2016 Ramsay Memorial Fellowships in Chemistry, UK

Applications are invited for Ramsay Memorial Fellowship for 2016. Preference will be given to candidates who have been born within the Commonwealth and who have graduated with distinction in chemistry from a university within the Commonwealth. Although a Ramsay Fellowship may be fully funded by the Trust, the expectation is that it will normally be co-sponsored either by a university department, an industrial company or another body approved by the Trustees. Where a Fellowship is co-sponsored, the Trust will contribute 50% of the Fellow’s total salary costs up to a maximum of £17,500 per annum, with the balance of all other costs to be paid by the co-sponsor. In addition, a grant of up to £1,000 per annum may be requested by the Fellow for (non-travel) research expenses which can be shown to be essential to the research work being undertaken. The application deadline is 15 November 2015.

Study Subject (s) : Fellowship is awarded in the field of Chemistry.
Course Level: Fellowships are awarded annually by the Ramsay Memorial Fellowships Trust to postdoctoral chemists who have already had some postdoctoral experience of research but who are in the early stages of their career, so that they may initiate a programme of original and independent research.
Scholarship Provider: Ramsay Memorial Fellowships Trust
Scholarship can be taken at: UK

Eligibility: Preference will be given to candidates who have been born within the Commonwealth and who have graduated with distinction in chemistry from a university within the Commonwealth. In exceptional cases, the Trustees may award a Fellowship to a candidate whose academic distinction has been gained outside the Commonwealth.
-Candidates will be expected to have had training in research leading to the possession of a PhD, preferably of a university within the British Commonwealth or its equivalent, and to show evidence of their ability to initiate and pursue a programme of independent research. Candidates cannot be considered unless they have submitted their PhD thesis by the 31 December following the deadline for receipt of applications. Great emphasis is placed by the Advisory Council on both the quality and the originality of the research proposed. The Advisory Council also takes into account evidence of mobility, at pre- or post-doctoral level and/or in the selection of the candidate’s proposed place of work. However, in doing so, it will also give consideration to any personal factors or circumstances that have impacted, or will be likely to impact, on this, eg parenting or caring responsibilities. Preference will also be given to early-career candidates.

Scholarship Open for International Students:  Preference will be given to candidates who have been born within the Commonwealth and who have graduated within the Commonwealth countries.

Scholarship Description: Ramsay Memorial Fellowships were instituted in 1920 as a memorial to Sir William Ramsay (1852-1916), who was Professor of Inorganic and General Chemistry at UCL from 1887-1913 and Britain’s very first recipient of the Nobel Prize in Chemistry, in 1904, for his discovery of the noble gases. Fellowships are awarded annually by the Ramsay Memorial Fellowships Trust to postdoctoral chemists who have already had some postdoctoral experience of research but who are in the early stages of their career, so that they may initiate a programme of original and independent research. Fellowships are usually tenable at a university or other place of academic research within the United Kingdom.

Number of award(s):  Not Known

Duration of award(s):  A Ramsay Fellowship will normally be tenable for a period of two years from 1 October in the year of award. In special circumstances, and with the approval of the Trustees, the beginning of the tenure may be deferred. In exceptional cases (for example, in instances where a Fellow is offered a temporary fixed-term academic position or wishes to give notice of parental leave), the Trustees may extend the Fellowship for a period up to, but not more than, a third year.

What does it cover?  Although a Ramsay Fellowship may be fully funded by the Trust, the expectation is that it will normally be co-sponsored either by a university department, an industrial company or another body approved by the Trustees. Where a Fellowship is co-sponsored, the Trust will contribute 50% of the Fellow’s total salary costs up to a maximum of £17,500 per annum, with the balance of all other costs to be paid by the co-sponsor. In addition, a grant of up to £1,000 per annum may be requested by the Fellow for (non-travel) research expenses which can be shown to be essential to the research work being undertaken.

Selection criteria: Not Known

Notification:  Applications will be considered by the Ramsay Trustees and Advisory Council, and candidates will be notified in due course of their decision.

How to Apply:  Applications for a British Ramsay Memorial Fellowship should be made on the prescribed application form and returned to the Executive Secretary, Ramsay Memorial Fellowships Trust, Academic Services, Student and Registry Services, University College London, Gower Street, London WC1E 6BT, UK (email: g.hawes-at-ucl.ac.uk), to arrive not later than 15 November of the year before the award.

Course Introduction

What is Climate Change? How should we respond to Climate Change? These questions are complex, not least because the responses available to us depend upon who is providing the answers and the particular perspective they take. The economist sees the economic challenges and opportunities of Climate Change; the scientist sees the need to describe and explain Climate Change; the policy-maker and social scientist see Climate Change as a social problem. Therefore, the first step to understanding Climate Change and what we do about it is to see how experts from different disciplines engage with the issue. The second step is to appreciate how our response to Climate Change depends upon the interplay between these different approaches.

This course offers you an introduction to different disciplinary perspectives on Climate Change to help you think about how Climate Change affects you as an individual, as a member of your local community, as a citizen of your country and as a member of the global community. We have designed the presentations, discussions, activities and assessment tasks in this course to help you understand what Climate Change is and what you – and we – should do about it.

Therefore, the first step to understanding Climate Change and what we do about it is to see how experts from different disciplines engage with the issue. The second step is to appreciate how our response to Climate Change depends upon the interplay between these different approaches.

This course offers you an introduction to different disciplinary perspectives on Climate Change to help you think about how Climate Change affects you as an individual, as a member of your local community, as a citizen of your country and as a member of the global community. We have designed the presentations, discussions, activities and assessment tasks in this course to help you understand what Climate Change is and what you – and we – should do about it. Applicant will also develop an awareness of the present and future impact on global communities, the political response to such impacts, and consider basic economic concepts and models that describe a framework in which changes to our use of resources can occur.

You Will Learn

By the end of the course, you will:

-an introduction to different disciplinary perspectives on Climate Change

– help to think about how Climate Change affects you as an individual, as a member of your local community, as a citizen of your country and as a member of the global community

– provide an introduction to the socio-political, scientific, and economic aspects of the phenomenon known as Climate Change

-You will emerge with a broad understanding of the science underpinning the claim that human activity has played a role in causing the current rise in global temperature

HFSP Postdoctoral Fellowships for International Applicants, 2016

The Human Frontier Science Program Organization (HFSPO) is offering postdoctoral fellowships for early career scientists to broaden their research skills. Two types of fellowships are awarded for a period of three years i.e. Long-term Fellowships (LTF) for projects in the life sciences and Cross-Disciplinary Fellowships (CDF) for a project in biology. A candidate who is not a national from one of the supporting countries may apply to work only in a research institution in one of the supporting countries while a candidate who is a national of one of the supporting countries can apply to work in a research institution in any country. Fellows must begin their fellowship between 1 April 2016 and 1 January 2017.

Study Subject(s):  LTF is awarded for a project in the life sciences which is significantly different from the applicant’s previous PhD or postdoctoral work. CDF is awarded for those applicants who have had limited exposure to biology during their previous training.
Course Level: This is a three year postdoctoral fellowship programme.
Scholarship Provider: The Human Frontier Science Program Organization (HFSPO)
Scholarship can be taken at: HFSPO supporting countries and in any country (A candidate who is not a national from one of the supporting countries may apply to work only in one of the supporting countries and a candidate who is a national of one of the supporting countries can apply to work in any country).

Eligibility:
-A candidate who is a national of one of the supporting countries can apply to work in a research institution in any country. HFSPO supporting countries: Australia, Austria, Belgium, Bulgaria, Canada, Croatia, Cyprus (EU part only), Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, India, Republic of Ireland, Italy, Japan, Republic of Korea, Latvia, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Malta, Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, United Kingdom and United States of America.
-For those going to institutions that are classified as extraterritorial such as the EMBL (Heidelberg/Germany, Grenoble/France or Monterotondo/Italy), ICPT or ICGEB (both in Trieste/Italy), Max Planck Institutes (Jupiter/Florida or Nijmegen/The Netherlands), the country in which the laboratory is located will be considered the host country.
-A research doctorate (PhD) or a doctoral-level degree comparable to a PhD with equivalent experience in basic research (e.g. a research based MD or medical PhD) must be conferred by the start of the fellowship.
-Applicants must have at least one lead author research paper – either accepted for publication, in press or published-in an international peer-reviewed journal by 27th August 2015 in order to be eligible to apply. The applicant must either be the single author, first author or joint first author. In a joint first author paper the applicant may be listed in second place, however the equal contribution of the first two authors must be clearly stated. In some cases the standard publication practice makes first authorship impossible (e.g. alphabetical listing of authors); these circumstances must be explained in the “Additional Comments” section of the application.

Scholarship Open for International Students:  Citizens from HFSPO supporting countries (Australia, Austria, Belgium, Bulgaria, Canada, Cyprus (EU part only), Croatia, Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, India, Republic of Ireland, Italy, Japan, Republic of Korea, Latvia, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Malta, Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, United Kingdom and United States of America) and from any country can apply for these HFSP postdoctoral fellowships.

Scholarship Description:  The Human Frontier Science Program Organization (HFSPO) supports innovative basic research into fundamental biological problems, with emphasis placed on novel approaches that cross disciplinary boundaries. Biological research has become increasingly quantitative through the participation of scientists from biophysics, physics, chemistry, computer science, engineering, mathematics and nanoscience. Such collaborations have led to new approaches for understanding the complex structures and regulatory networks that characterize the evolution and interactions of organisms and biological systems. HFSPO invites applications for its two international postdoctoral programs:
-Long-Term Fellowships (LTF) are for applicants with a Ph.D. in a biological discipline, who will broaden their expertise by proposing a project in the life sciences which is significantly different from their previous Ph.D. or postdoctoral work.
-Cross-Disciplinary Fellowships (CDF) are for applicants with a Ph.D. from outside the life sciences (e.g. in physics, chemistry, mathematics, engineering or computer sciences), who have had limited exposure to biology during their previous training.

Number of award(s):  Not Known

Duration of award(s):  The HFSPO postdoctoral fellowship can be held for up to 3 years, with no possibility for renewal. Fellows may interrupt HFSPO support after the second year, for up to two years, while continuing postdoctoral work funded through other sources. Fellows can either use the third fellowship year to continue work in the host laboratory, to return to their home country, or to move to another HFSPO member country. In all cases, HFSPO fellows are eligible to apply for the HFSPO Career Development Award (CDA).

What does it cover?  The CDA award provides start up funds of 300,000 USD over three years to initiate an independent laboratory and may be taken up at the end of the fellowship.
