SIBBM supports short-term research visits to an Italian or foreign laboratory. The aim is to facilitate valuable collaborations with research groups applying techniques that are unavailable in the applicant's laboratory. Eligibility criteria:
Duration: from 1 to 2 weeks.
Please note that you cannot benefit from a visiting fellowship and a travel grant in the same year.
Fellowship applications should be submitted to the SIBBM Secretary by e-mail at: email@example.com and will be considered following the calendar deadlines indicated below. The applications will be reviewed for their scientific contents and eligibility criteria by the SIBBM Executive Committee within 15 days after the deadline. The application for Short-Term Fellowships is online only and should be written in English. No hard copies are required. Only complete applications, i.e. including host institute acceptance, will be processed. Receipt of complete applications will be acknowledged via email.
How to apply:
Successful applicants will receive up to € 1000 (half prior to departure, and half after submission of the report and the video (see below).
At the end of the visit, the young researcher will provide a brief (max 1 page) report (approved by the head of the host laboratory) of the work carried out during the visit, and will share the experience of being involved in this program with a short video (2-3 min), which should be sent to the SIBBM Secretary.
