The BIRAX (the Britain-Israel Research and Academic Exchange) Regenerative Medicine Initiative Fellowship Scheme supports research visits by UK and Israel researchers for up to 6 months to laboratories in the UK and Israel. The emphasis is on early career researchers to further their research experience, establish or strengthen research links, learn new techniques and research methods not available in their home laboratories and to facilitate collaboration between the home and host research groups.
Eligibility: PhD students or post-docs
Awards include: Return travelling expenses to the host institute and a subsistence allowance to cover the Fellow’s living costs.
Application deadline:15 December 2013 (assessments will begin on Monday 16 December)
Partnership Grant will once again be available during the 2013-14 academic year and offer opportunities for PhD and postdoctoral researchers to undertake a short period of research or work on a particular project that helps sustain and develop partnerships with the international universities that are Strategic Partners of the College. The level of funding that will be awarded is designed to cover travel costs and make a contribution toward subsistence at the partner institution. It is anticipated that no award will be for more than £2,000.
