Postdoctoral Fellowships with co-funding from industry 2023 2nd call

This call is closed. New call will be announced in June 2024.

The Danish Diabetes and Endocrine Academy (DDEA) invites applications for two 50%-financed two-year postdoctoral fellowships of 600,000 DKK (covering salary) over a period of two years in 2024-2025.

At least 25% of the remaining 50% funding must be covered by a private life sciences company. The other 25% remaining funding can be covered by e.g. hospitals, universities, the Danish regions or private foundations. The DDEA does not cover already ongoing projects.

With these postdoctoral fellowships, the DDEA wants to support researchers who are in the beginning of their research careers and develop/consolidate their individual research profile and scientific network. 

Applications can be in any research field within diabetes, metabolism or endocrinology.

The DDEA strongly emphasises mobility, i.e. applications where the applicant carries out his/her postdoctoral studies in another institution than the institution where the applicant carried out her/his PhD studies and applications where the applicant plans to stay in a research institution abroad or work in another sector (i.e. general practice, industry, university, hospital) during her/his postdoctoral studies.

Deadline for application is 23 August 2023 at 23:59 CET with expected date of reply 12 December 2023.

The grant must be activated within six months after receiving the grant notification letter (or by further agreement with the DDEA).

Please note that postdoctoral fellows whose principal investigator currently hosts a DDEA-funded PhD student or postdoctoral fellow are not eligible for funding under this scheme. Principal supervisors/investigators may only host one DDEA-funded PhD student or postdoctoral fellow at a time (principal supervisors/investigators hosting a DDA-funded researcher with a grant from 2018-2022 are eligible to be involved in a DDEA application). Applicants are responsible for informing their principal supervisor of this rule.
