Instruct R&Ds and Internship Call OPEN


Call for proposals for the Instruct Internship programme 2015

Instruct provides access to state-of-the-art infrastructure and technology to support research in structural biology. Our aim is to encourage and facilitate the integrative use of technologies and methodologies that are available at our 16 Instruct Centres around Europe and in Israel. The Instruct Internship Programme funds research visits of 3-6 months duration to Instruct Centres. Internships cover travel plus subsistence of the intern for pre-doctoral and early stage postdoctoral fellows. They facilitate valuable collaborations with Instruct research groups applying techniques that are not available in the applicant's laboratory and the longer duration of awards allows interns to gain in depth experience in the host laboratory. Applications should specifically focus on the benefit to the applicant's research.

Call for proposals for Instruct pilot R&D projects 2015

Instruct has allocated funds to support small pilot research and development projects in any area of structural biology up to a maximum of €15,000 per project. Projects should propose basic or applied research which is preliminary in nature with an expectation of collecting data that may be included in support of an application for more substantial funding through conventional routes. Projects that include technology and/or software development are encouraged. All proposals must include the use of technologies available at Instruct Centres through the Instruct access process.

Proposals for Instruct Internship and R&D are now invited.

Deadline for proposal submission is 5pm CET, Friday 12th June 2015. Applicants must register on the Instruct  website where the proposal submission forms and further information is available or contact us directly at Applicants must be resident in one of the Instruct member countries
