HFSP postdoctoral fellowships encourage early career scientists to expand their study skills by moving to new regions of research when working in a brand new nation.

HFSP fellowships are for three years.  Fellows may decide to remain for up to three years from the host nation or utilize the past year of the fellowship to come back to their home country or to proceed to some other HFSPO member nation.

Long-Term Fellowships (LTF) are for applicants with a Ph.D. in a biological field, who will expand their experience by proposing a job in the life sciences that’s substantially different from their past Ph.D. or postdoctoral work.

Cross-Disciplinary Fellowships (CDF) are for applicants with a Ph.D. from outside the life sciences (e.g. in physics, chemistry, math, engineering or computer sciences), who’ve had limited exposure to biology during their prior training

Eligibility Criteria:

Important eligibility criteria:

A candidate who is not a national from one of the HFSP members (see list below) may apply to work only in a research institution in one of the member countries. A candidate who is a national of one of the member countries can apply to work in a research institution in any country.

Applicants must propose to work in a country different to the one where they did their previous PhD work or first post-doctoral studies. For those institutions that are not classified as national, i.e. international or extraterritorial institutions such as EMBL, ICPT or ICGEB, the country in which the laboratory is located will be considered the host country.


2) Doctoral degree

A research doctorate (PhD) or a doctoral-level degree comparable to a PhD with equivalent experience in basic research (e.g. a research based MD or medical PhD) must be conferred by the start of the fellowship. It is not required at the time of submission. By “conferred degree” we mean you have received your diploma for the degree. The “conferral date” is the date on the official PhD document. Please refer to the application guidelines for information in case you were not yet awarded the PhD.

3) Research publications

Applicants must have at least one lead author, full-length research paper – either accepted for publication, in press or published – in an international peer-reviewed journal or published on a pre-print server such as bioRxiv by 22 August 2019 in order to be eligible to apply. The applicant must either be the single author, first author or joint first author. In a joint first author paper the applicant does not have to be listed in the first place, but the equal contribution of the authors must be clearly stated in all cases. In some cases the standard publication practice makes first authorship impossible (e.g. alphabetical listing of authors); these circumstances must be explained in the “Additional Comments” section of the application.

Only publications written in English are taken into account. Review articles and patents are not taken into account.

Electronic copies of lead author publications must be uploaded while preparing the application. They cannot be uploaded after the applicant has submitted.
