The Lundbeck Foundation hereby invites applications for five fellowships which will be granted to especially promising young researchers and their research groups.
The fellowships are awarded for five years, and each individual fellowship amounts to 10 million Danish kroner (approx. 1,3 mio. Euro).
The fellowships are intended for five researchers in their thirties who will be capable of establishing or developing research groups within the health- or natural sciences. We envisage researchers who have received their Ph.D. degree within the last 5-7 years. The subject area should be frontline basic- or applied research within the scope of the Foundation's grant strategy, as can be seen at www.lundbeckfonden.dk
The fellowships may well attract Danish and foreing researchers from abroad who wish to move to Denmark and continue their research here.
The application should be no more than 10 A4 pages, and should include an account of the project's research plan, collaborators, budget, and how it is anticipated that the research group will be placed within a Danish research institution. In addition, a curriculum vitae with attached list of scientific publications and letters of recommendation are requested.
The application, written in English, should be made via the Foundation's Electronic Application System for Junior Grup Leader Fellowships 2010 at www.lundbeckfonden.dk no later than December 15, 2009.
