Limit of tenure: Funding for these posts is available for up to 12 months
Applications are invited for the next round of University of Cambridge / Wellcome Trust Senior Internships
The scheme is aimed at suitably qualified post-doctoral candidates with backgrounds in the physical sciences (incl. engineering, mathematics and computer sciences) who wish to gain experience in the application of their research to solve problems in the basic biological and biomedical sciences.
Research projects must fall within the broad remit of the Wellcome Trust and the research must be undertaken in laboratories within the School of Biological Sciences or the School of Clinical Medicine. In exceptional circumstances candidates with a background in the life sciences wishing to gain experience working in the physical sciences may also be considered, but additional restrictions apply.
The internships are intended to provide opportunities for award holders to gain experience in applying biological approaches, and/or apply novel theoretical or experimental techniques from the physical sciences to address biological problems. In addition, it is hoped that this scheme will foster longer-term collaborations between Principal Investigators from the physical and life sciences disciplines within the University of Cambridge.
Senior Internships will be awarded for periods of 3-12 months. Please note, to apply for this scheme, candidates will need to identify Principal Investigators to work with, complete an application form with a brief project outline and provide supporting statements and references.Â Full details on how to apply can be found on the website http://www.admin.cam.ac.uk/offices/rso/internal/issf/.
