The Danish National Advanced Technology Foundation (HTF)
The industrial postdoc program is targeting talented researchers in the beginning of their career, i.e. within a maximum of three years (excl. maternity/paternity leave) after obtaining the PhD degree.
Industrial postdoc projects are individual projects of 1-3 years duration applied for by the postdoc candidate. The project is financed by the parties according to the Foundation’s 1-2-3 model based on the principle that all parties contribute their own share of co-funding. In addition to this, the company and the research institution each provide a mentor, who acts as a sparring partner for the industrial postdoc.
Deadline: Wednesday 26 Marts 2014 at noon.
ERC Starting Grants are designed to support excellent Principal Investigators at the career stage at which they are starting their own independent research team or programme. This action is open to researchers of any nationality who intend to conduct their research activity in any Member State or Associated Country.
Deadline: Tuesday March 25 at 5PM, Brussels local time.
