Novo Nordisk Fellowships
Novo Nordisk Postdoctoral Fellowship Programme at Karolinska Institutet
This fellowship programme aims to support the development of a new generation of exceptional young diabetes and metabolism researchers, to become future leaders in the field, while further developing scientific excellence within these areas ultimately improving the lives of patients.
Based at Karolinska Institutet, Fellows will undertake cutting edge research projects, mentored by front-line researchers in the field of diabetes and metabolism. In addition, it is anticipated that during the course of the fellowships, fellows will have the opportunity to spend approximately 3 months in the research laboratories at Novo Nordisk in Copenhagen. Thus, Fellows will gain insight into research conducted in both academia and industry. In order to increase coherence around the Fellowship programme, a number of events will be held throughout the year such as high profile lectures, symposia, etc. which the fellows will attend, both at Karolinska Institutet and at Novo Nordisk in Copenhagen.
- The postdoctoral research fellowships are aimed at early career researchers with a basic science background.
- Fellowships are fully funded for a 3-year period providing salary as well as travel allowance for the fellow.
- The fellowship programme is open to outstanding candidates of any nationality.
