This competitive PhD student Research Fellowship programme is directed at young graduates who want to achieve a PhD degree in the field of basic, translational or clinical hepatology. The programme is open to Europeans and non-Europeans who wish to conduct a PhD thesis at a European centre.
This competitive Postdoctoral Research Fellowship programme targets the most promising newly qualified postgraduate researchers who wish to expand research fields and start developing their independent research careers. The programme is open to Europeans and non-Europeans who wish to conduct post-graduate research at a European centre. Applicants must hold a PhD and /or a MD degree and have no more than two years of postgraduate research experience.
The Short-Term Fellowship programme is directed at postgraduate investigators (both basic and clinical investigators) who intend to spend a limited amount of time (usually 3-6 months) at a foreign institution to accomplish a very focused research project, to learn an experimental procedure or methodology or to get in-depth knowledge about a sophisticated, clinical diagnostic procedure not available at the Home Institution.
EASL launched a new fellowship programme for Young Investigators entitled ‘The Daniel Alagille Award’ in honour of Pr D. Alagille. The purpose of this fellowship is to encourage biomedical research in the field of paediatric and adult genetic cholestatic diseases sharing mutual disease-causing mechanisms.
