Applications for the 2012 L’Oréal-UNESCO UK and Ireland For Women In Science fellowships are now open.
L’Oréal UK and Ireland, the UK National Commission for UNESCO and the Irish National Commission for UNESCO, with the support of the Royal Society have partnered together to provide a dedicated UK and Ireland For Women In Science Fellowship Programme for women scientists at postdoctoral level to enable and/or facilitate promising scientific research in the life or physical sciences.
Four Fellowships will be awarded in 2012 to outstanding female postdoctoral scientists to assist them with their research. The Fellowships, each worth £15,000 (equivalent € for candidates in Ireland), are tenable at any UK or Irish university or research institute to support a 12-month period of research.
The fellowship money can be spent in any number of innovative ways to enable women scientists to further their careers and facilitate world class research – such as buying equipment, paying for childcare or funding travel costs to an overseas conference
