Postdoc fellowships to non-EU researchers ofselected countries

Postdoc fellowships to non-EU researchers (Latin America, Asia, Africa, non-EU Mediterranean countries, Eastern Europe)

As promoter of the BCCM/ULC public collection of (sub)polar cyanobacteria, I want to inform you of the possibility to apply for a post-doc fellowship of 6 to 18 months to work on the molecular taxonomy of polar cyanobacteria and their potential to produce secondary metabolites. The collection is described at : http://bccm.belspo.be/about/ulc.php. The candidate must prove that (s)he will be able to go back to its country after the fellowship.

To stimulate the S&T cooperation, the Federal Science Policy Office does implement a fellowship scheme for highly qualified researchers (i.e. postdoctoral level or equivalent experience) from specific regions, granting them an opportunity to work a certain period in a Belgian research team before going back to their institution.

Are excluded the citizens of the countries member of the EU, of those associated to the 7th PC (Switzerland, Israel, Norway, Iceland, Liechtenstein, Turkey, Croatia, Macedonia, Serbia, Albania, Montenegro, Bosnia-Herzegovina, Moldova) and of the following countries : Qatar, Singapore, Brunei, United Arab Emirates, USA, Australia, Canada, Kuwait, Taiwan, Japan, Bahamas, South Korea, New Zealand, Bahrain, Oman, Seychelles, Barbados, Saudi Arabia. The duration of the stay is 6 to 18 months. Applications must be sent to the Federal Science Policy Office by the Belgian project leaders.
Closing date: Monday 5 March 2012, 17 PM
