The Lundbeck Foundation has an aspiration for its grants to make a significant contribution to advances in research-based knowledge and experience in the fields of biomedical, clinical and health sciences in Denmark. At the same time, our grants must help ensure that Denmark always has the best graduates and scientists at all career levels in these fields. The Lundbeck Foundation encourages diversity at all levels. It is therefore important that we receive applications from as many qualified scientists as possible, from all backgrounds.

Lundbeck Foundation postdoc grants in Denmark and abroad
Postdoctoral training plays an important role in developing talent. The Foundation considers change in research environment and/or research topic of paramount importance for establishing a solid basis for a future independent research career.
This programme supports
1. Scientists in Denmark who wish to conduct research at a research institution outside Denmark for up to 36 months (and no less than 12 months) and who plan to return to Denmark to continue their research.
2. Scientists from abroad who wish to conduct research in an established Danish research environment.
3. Scientists in Denmark who wish to move to a different research environment within Denmark.
4. Scientists in Denmark who wish to continue to conduct research within their current affiliated research environment and already have had at least 3 years postdoctoral training in another research environment and/or on a different research topic.
The Foundation prioritises proposals that include lengthy international research experience.

Research theme
The proposed research must be within the fields of biomedical, clinical or health science, or must facilitate research within these fields.
