The Novo Nordisk Foundation invites young, ambitious researchers to apply for a Visiting Scholar/Visiting Postdoc Fellowship in interdisciplinary research at the highest international level. The fellowship offers an opportunity to carry out a research project where 3 years are dedicated to work at the prestigious Stanford University in California, USA, under the Stanford Bio-X Institute, followed by up to 1 year at a university or other public or non-profit research institution in Denmark.
The foundation seeks to accomplish the objectives of this call by three means:
- By giving the awardee the opportunity to obtain research experience, training, and knowledge in a unique interdisciplinary environment at the highest international level, while also openly exchanging intellect and ideas with Stanford’s peers.
- Through mobility, extending the awardee’s scientific networks and innovative spirit, and foster scientific independence.
- By associating the awardee to a Danish research institution throughout the project, thereby facilitating the return of the awardee from Stanford, and his/her continued research career in the Danish research environment.
It is possible to apply within all research fields covered by natural and technical sciences, biomedicine and/or biotechnology, under the condition, that the project is of interdisciplinary structure with potential applications to biomedicine, human health, biotechnology, or sustainability.
Note: Fellowships within this programme are also offered with Weizmann Institute of Science in Israel as the hosting institution. For more information go to Postdoctoral Fellowships at Weizmann Institute of Science.
