5) Grantové možnosti EMBO

uzávěrka 15. Dubna nebo během celého roku

EMBO GRANTS ANNOUNCEMENT

1) Installation Grants  - DEADLINE 15 April

EMBO Installation Grants aim to strengthen science in the Czech Republic, Poland, Portugal and Turkey by encouraging talented researchers to establish independent laboratories in these countries.
Institutions and successful job candidates apply together to gain funding beyond normal start-up packages. The commitment and support of the receiving institute during and beyond the tenure of the grant is regarded as essential. This is meant to ensure continued support of the academic career of the recipient.
Successful applicants receive an annual support of 50,000 euro for three to five years and benefits similar to those of the EMBO Young Investigator Programme.
The scheme is entirely funded by the EMBC Member States who elect to participate in the programme. It is administered by the EMBO Young Investigator Programme. Search the Installation Grants database for the 58 grants, which have been awarded since 2006.

Find out more at http://www.embo.org/funding-awards/installation-grants

2) Short-Term Fellowships Applications accepted throughout the year

Short-Term Fellowships fund research visits of up to three months to laboratories in Europe and elsewhere in the world. The aim is to facilitate valuable collaborations with research groups applying techniques that are unavailable in the applicant's laboratory. Short-Term Fellowships are not awarded for exchanges between two laboratories within the same country. Short-Term Fellowships are intended for joint research work rather than consultations.

All applications should focus on the benefit to the home laboratory and involve movement between countries – one of which must be an EMBC Member State. (For applicants from a laboratory within a non-member state, the Short-Term Fellowships are for a fixed duration of 90 days). The fellowships cover travel plus subsistence of the fellow only and not of dependents.

12) SOUTĚŽ pro studenty a absolventy doktorských studijních programů (Ph.D.) CESNET

Sdružení CESNET založily vysoké školy a Akademie věd České republiky. Jeho hlavním cílem je provozovat a rozvíjet českou národní e-infrastrukturu pro vědu, výzkum a vzdělávání. Ta nabízí celou řadu služeb pro moderní vědeckou a výzkumnou práci – například výkonné výpočetní clustery vybavené programy pro celou řadu oborů, velká datová úložiště pro ukládání a sdílení dat, prostředky pro multimediální komunikaci usnadňující spolupráci distribuovaných týmů a řadu dalších.

...Předmět soutěže
Zpracování případové studie ohledně:
◾inovativního využití stávajících služeb e-infrastruktury CESNET nebo
◾nových služeb a způsobů jejich využití ve vědě, výzkumu či vzdělávání.

Národní e-infrastruktura CESNET poskytuje služby především v oblasti informačních technologií, ale aplikační doména soutěžních případových studií není v žádném případě omezena pouze na tento obor. Naopak uvítáme, pokud uchazeč navrhne využití služeb e-infrastruktury i v jiných oborech, například v biologii, chemii, lingvistice či jakýchkoli jiných přírodních nebo humanitních vědách.

Pro koho je soutěž určena
Pro všechny studenty doktorských studijních programů (Ph.D.) a jejich absolventy, kteří k datu uzávěrky soutěže nepřekročí věk 35 let.
