Human Frontier Science Program Postdoctoral Fellowships (HFSP) invites applications from international students who want to pursue postdoctoral research. Postdoctoral Fellowships will provide a living allowance as well as a research and travel allowance. Reliant on their precise situation fellows may also be eligible to get a child allowance, a parental leave allowance, and a relocation allowance.
Human Frontier Science Program Postdoctoral Fellowships supports proposals for frontier, potentially transformative research in the life sciences. Applications for high-risk projects are particularly encouraged. The projects should be interdisciplinary in nature and should dare existing paradigms by using novel methods and techniques. Scientifically, they should address a vital problem or obstruction to progress in the field. Human Frontier Science Program Postdoctoral Fellowships inspire young-career scientists to widen their research skills by moving into new fields of study while working in a new country.
An International Scientists Committee, which had commenced work in the year 1987, gave additional shape to the Program, defining its organization and the specifics of its program activities, research areas and selection processes. Intergovernmental conferences were held in June and July 1989 in Tokyo and Berlin, respectively, which led to endorsement of the plan by the participating governments. It was decided to implement the HFSP for an initial experimental stage of 3 years.
