The Grupo Español de Investigación e Innovación en Vesículas Extracelulares (GEIVEX) the German Society for Extracellular Vesicles (GSEV), the United Kingdom Society for Extracellular Vesicles (UKEV) and the Italian Society for Extracellular Vesicles (EVIta) are pleased to announce the relaunch of the first “International Mobility Fellowships” to foster collaborations among members of these Societies. The fellowship (2000€) should cover travel and accommodation expenses for a one-month stay of an Early Career Researcher (ECR; i.e. Ph.D. students or Postdoctoral fellows with less than five years´ experience pertaining to at least one of our Societies) in a different Country of the Host laboratory.
To facilitate participation of ECRs we are initially asking members of the EV community to express their interest and willingness to host a potential visiting researcher in their lab. Note that applying does not commit you and your lab to host an ECR; your details will be available to potential ECRs who would then need to contact you and, if you agree, submit an application to visit your lab.
To become a potential host lab please email your National Society (email addresses below) and include:
Name of PI and affiliation
Summary of Research Interests (max 100 words)
Potential techniques/skills that could be taught to a visiting ECR (max 100 words)
Please indicate if you are willing for this info to be shared publicly (via emails to the Society members, advertisements on Society websites, social media etc).
