About this webinar

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 ).

This webinar will include:

  • Introduction to HFSP and their mandates.
  • Details of HFSP Fellowships open to senior PhD students and early-stage postdoctoral fellows.
  • Insights into what the review committee looks for in a successful application.
  • Advice for prospective applicants.
  • Why apply?- what having an HFSP Fellowship has meant for an awardee’s scientific career
