IUPAB Bursaries

IUPAB offers bursaries to individual young scientists to participate in the IUPAB Congress to be held in Foz do Iguazu (Brazil) (October 26th-30th, 2020). The purpose of these bursaries is to promote the mobility of biophysicists and to promote the best Science in the field of biophysics.

 

Applications are invited from young scientists from any country (except Brazil, the host country). Eligible applicants are PhD students and Postdoctoral fellows who obtained a Ph.D. degree after the 31st of December of 2017.

The bursary is to be used to contribute to the costs of accommodation (4 hotel nights in double room) and registration fee. Closing date for applications is 15th, March, 2020. Exceptionally, in a few very well justified cases, an additional amount could be transferred to applicants coming from less favored and overseas countries to cover part of the air ticket.

 

The awarding of bursaries will be decided by IUPAB Council, within the financial framework provided by the IUPAB Executive Committee. Applications that come in after the closing date will not be considered. The Council will have the final say for decisions concerning eligibility, scientific merit of the application and the level of support.

 

Recipients of an IUPAB Bursary are required to submit a brief report (1 page maximum) describing the achievements during the visit. The report must be received by the IUPAB Secretariat within 2 months of the end of the award. All correspondence will be carried out by email, in English.

 

Applications should be sent to Prof. Juan C. Gomez-Fernandez, IUPAb Secretary General (jcgomez@um.es).
