5th Call for proposals for the Instruct Internship programme
Instruct provides access to state-of-the-art infrastructure and technology to support research in structural biology.
Our aim is to encourage and facilitate the integrative use of technologies and methodologies that are available at Instruct Centres. The internship programme aims to train European structural and cell biologists in a wide range of technologies, not just one specialism. These researchers will be able to integrate different technologies to open up new areas of research.
The Instruct Internship Programme funds research visits of 3-6 months duration to Instruct Centres. Internships cover travel plus subsistence of the intern for pre-doctoral and early stage postdoctoral fellows. They facilitate valuable collaborations with Instruct research groups applying techniques that are not available in the applicant's laboratory and the longer duration of awards allows interns to gain in depth experience in the host laboratory. Applications should specifically focus on the benefit to the applicant's research.
More complete guidelines are available here.
Deadline for proposal submission is 5pm CET 10th November 2017
Applicants must register on the Instruct website where the proposal submission forms and further information is available or contact us directly at email@example.com. Applicants must be resident in one of the Instruct member countries.
