Funding is available for two collaboration projects, one hosted by a Medicine and Pharmacy department at Uppsala University, and one at a department at the Faculty of Veterinary Medicine and Animal Science, SLU.

U-Share has identified the possibility to train as a postdoc at the other university as an attractive approach to increase collaborations and to exchange scientific knowledge in a way that will benefit both universities.

To this end, funding has been made available for two collaboration projects, one hosted by a Medicine and Pharmacy department at Uppsala University, and one at a department at the Faculty of Veterinary Medicine and Animal Science, SLU. The project led by a Principle Investigator at Uppsala University should include a post doc with a PhD degree from SLU while the project at SLU, should include a post doc with a PhD degree from Uppsala University.

To apply for this funding, an application should be submitted jointly by the host department researcher and a proposed post doc. The post doc applicant must hold a doctoral degree awarded no more than three years before the deadline for this call to participate in the exchange. If you defend your thesis before 7 June 2020, you are also eligible to apply.

Deadline for application: 15 May 2020
