OWSD fellowships: Call for applications
Grantees can choose either a full-time three-year fellowship option, where the research is undertaken entirely at the host institute, or a sandwich option, where applicants are registered as PhD students in their home country and spend a minimum of six months at a host institute abroad. OWSD particularly encourages women to consider the sandwich option, which allows them to earn their PhD degree in their home country while accessing specialist researchers and equipment at the host institute.
Eligible scientific fields include: agricultural sciences; structural, cell and molecular biology; biological systems and organisms; medical and health sciences; neurosciences; chemical sciences; engineering sciences; information technology; astronomy, space and earth sciences; mathematical sciences; physics.
Applications by students in the basic (or 'pure') sciences (such as mathematics, physics and chemistry) are encouraged.

Applications must reach the OWSD secretariat by 31 July 2015.
