Call for Applications: EAU Research Foundation Career Development Grant

Wed, 10 Dec 2014

The EAU Research Foundation (EAURF) is calling for applications for a three-year career development post doctoral position in Urological Research. The EAU Research Foundation aims to build scientific research capacity and promote integration of excellent scientific researchers within the European Urology Research environment.

The EAU Research Foundation Career development program aims to support excellent young researchers to develop an independent research career and in doing so strengthen the European urology research environment. This program will give the researcher the opportunity to transition from a senior postdoctoral research position to an independent principal investigator with three years of independent funding under the mentorship of an experienced principal investigator.

These would normally be in a different host institution to their current post-doctoral position which would build, expand and enrich the applicants research skills but we would consider applications proposing to stay in their current institution if they have already worked in at least two independent laboratories. Applications which would establish trans-institutional collaborations and maximize the potential of the European Urology research community with a strong translational aspect to the project are encouraged. This could involve scientists from different areas of research moving into the Urology research space.

Conditions for applicationEligible applicants must hold a doctoral degree, and must have a minimum of 3 and normally no more than 6 years post-doctoral research experience. Applicants must not be tenured for an academic position at the time of applying.

How to apply?The process will consist of a preliminary application (Deadline 9th January, 2015) which will be short listed by 30th January, 2015 for a full application (Deadline 6th March, 2015) and an interview at the time of the Annual EAU Congress in Madrid (20-24th March, 2015) which shortlisted candidates must be available to attend.
