Biophysical Sciences Institute Senior Fellowships
BSI Fellowship Scheme
Durham Biophysical Sciences Institute 1+1 Fellowships
The Durham Biophysical Sciences Institute 1+1 Fellowship Scheme is designed to attract lively, inventive and influential figures in biophysical sciences research, to provide them with an environment in Durham that will challenge their thinking and ours and to develop new and sustainable collaborations.
These innovative Fellowships are aimed at Senior Academics who are unable to take a traditional length Fellowship (of six weeks to 6 months), but who are eager to engage with the Durham University academic community. Typically the 1+1 Fellowships will take place over the summer months.
The 1+1 Fellowships will take the form of a visit to Durham by a Senior Academic (the 1+1 Senior Fellow) and a concurrent visit by a junior member of their research group or a junior colleague from their home institution (1+1 Junior Fellow) who would then remain in Durham after the departure of the 1+1 Senior Fellow for a longer period (from two to six months). The Senior Fellow’s visit to Durham can be split into two periods providing each visit lasts two or more weeks.
2013/14 is the final year that the 1+1 Fellowship Scheme will be offered. Typically one Fellowship is offered per year, however, this depends on the length of the Fellows’ visits and in exceptional circumstances two can be offered.
What the Durham Biophysical Sciences Institute 1+1 Fellowship offers
A 1+1 Fellowship provides the holder with the novel opportunity to develop their research and ideas, form collaborations and share ideas and techniques, without the difficulty of taking a break from ongoing research. The process would be started by their presence in Durham and continue through the embedding of their junior colleague in their collaborators research groups.
Durham University will cover the costs associated with the Senior and Junior Research Fellows travelling to and from Durham from their home institution (return fare – economy class), accommodation during their visit and will provide all 1+1 Junior Fellows with an honorarium (£1,920 for six months, prorated for shorter stays).
