Rosalind Franklin Fellowships – University of Groningen

“To promote the participation of women in Natural Sciences and Liberal Arts the University of Groningen offers a prestigious fellowship program named after Rosalind Franklin, whose X-ray studies of DNA were crucial to solving its structure.

Four fellowships are available in the Faculty of Mathematics and Natural Sciences. The fellowships will be awarded to outstanding women scientists from any of the disciplines mathematics, physics, astronomy, chemistry, biology, pharmacy, environmental studies, computer science and artificial intelligence.* Presently, 14 Rosalind Franklin fellows are working at the Faculty.

We are looking for ambitious, creative women who aim for a successful independent career towards full professorship in a European top research university. Successful candidates will be expected to establish an independent, externally funded research program in collaboration with colleagues at our university and elsewhere. They will also be expected to participate in and contribute to the development of the teaching program of the Faculty. Rosalind Franklin Fellowships (RFF) are funded with a generous startup package, including funds for a PhD position.”

The application deadline is January 7th, 2011.
