University of Cambridge/ Wellcome Trust Senior Internships for Interdisciplinary Research - deadline 14 February 2014

Applications are invited for the next round of University of Cambridge/ Wellcome Trust Senior Internships. (Up to 3 Posts).

The scheme is aimed at suitably qualified post-doctoral candidates with backgrounds in the physical sciences (incl. engineering, mathematics and computer sciences) who wish to gain experience in the application of their research to solve problems in the basic biological and biomedical sciences.

The internships are intended to provide opportunities for award holders to gain experience in applying biological approaches, and/or apply novel theoretical or experimental techniques from the physical sciences to address biological problems. In addition, it is hoped that this scheme will foster longer-term collaborations between Principal Investigators from the physical and life sciences disciplines within the University of Cambridge. Research projects must fall within the broad remit of the Wellcome Trust. The research must be undertaken in laboratories within the School of Biological Sciences or the School of Clinical Medicine. The departments in which the posts will be based, will depend on the nature of the projects, however, the roles will be based within the University of Cambridge.

Senior Internships will be awarded for periods of 3-12 months. The salary will be in the range of £28,132-£36,661 depending upon experience.

This Scheme is funded jointly between the Wellcome Trust and the University of Cambridge.  

This is a rolling programme. The next deadline for applications is Friday, 14 February 2014 (12pm).
