IndiaBiostreams: Let’s Discuss HFSP Postdoctoral Fellowships

International Grants Awareness Program (iGAP)

An informational discussion of the Human Frontier Science Program (HFSP) Postdoctoral Fellowship funding opportunity.

As research is progressively occurring in the international arena, India is keen to align with international funding agencies that reflect this shift. This has opened the doors for Indian researchers, working in the field of life sciences, to a large number of international funding schemes.

IndiaBioscience brings to you the International Grants Awareness Program (iGAP) which aims to improve the success rate for Indian applications at international funding opportunities- for some of which India even contributes towards. The objective of this project series is to spread awareness of international funding schemes, impart skills to craft a successful application and inculcate the confidence to apply by sharing access to a network of Indian mentors. Here we explore the Human Frontier Science Program (HFSP) Postdoctoral Fellowships.

Join us for an informational webinar that brings to you multiple perspectives. Hear from Guntram Bauer ( Director of Science, Policy and Communications, HFSP ), Barbara Pauly ( Director of Fellowships, HFSP ), Shubha Tole ( Principal Investigator, TIFR | HFSP Review Committee member ), Anjana Badrinarayanan ( Principal Investigator, NCBS | HFSP Awardee ).
