Applications Open for 2019 ESPE Research Fellowship

The European Society for Paediatric Endocrinology (ESPE) provides one Research Fellowship to support young paediatricians or scientists to conduct research in any field of endocrinology at leading institutions worldwide. The Research Fellowship is sponsored by Novo Nordisk Health Care AG in Switzerland.

The fellowship can be held in the applicant’s current department or could be held at another institution with the relevant expertise in paediatric endocrinology. If the fellowship is held in the applicant’s current department, a period of time spent in another institution to, for instance, learn another technique, will be viewed favourably. Projects related to diabetes and obesity will not be considered in this call.

To be eligible the applicant must:

Be proposed by their current Supervisor/Head of Department, who must be an ESPE member.

Be an ESPE member or have applied for membership.

Be based in Europe at the time of application.

One research fellowship grant of €125,000 is available for up to two years of research training in a centre of excellence. An additional €15,000 is available for consumables.

Applications should be submitted by the deadline of 30 April 2019.
