The second call for proposals for the European Young Investigator (EURYI) Award, which enables and encourages outstanding young researchers from all over the world, has been announced. This European programme for young researchers is managed and funded by the scientific and research funding organisations under the umbrella of the European Union Research Organisations Heads of Research Councils (EUROHORCs). The Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft (DFG, German Research Foundation) is responsible for administration of the programme in Germany. The aim of the EURYI Awards is to effectively enable and encourage outstanding young researchers to work in one of the European countries participating in the programme for a five year period. This is intended to support the career development of the next generation of leading researchers and, at the same time, to increase the attractiveness of the European Research Area on an international level for the long term.
A EURYI Award will give young researchers the opportunity to establish and lead an independent junior research group at a recognised European research institution. This programme of excellence, which is committed to the idea of early scientific independence, is based upon the "Memorandum of Understanding", signed by 20 scientific organisations from 16 European countries in May 2004. The programme is open to researchers from all scientific disciplines and is directed towards researchers from anywhere in the world. Each award will last for a five-year period and will include the salary of the award holder and funding for an independent junior research group (including two or three staff positions for doctoral students or postdoctoral students), as well as funding for consumables, travel expenses, etc.
Applicants for a EURYI Award should have an excellent scientific track record. They should have distinguished themselves through outstanding research achievements and demonstrate the potential to become world class lePage: 1 2 Related biology news :1
