Biophysical Sciences Institute Senior Fellowships

Supporting Fellows

The Durham BSI is committed to supporting visiting Fellows from within academe and industry. Fellows linked to the BSI are embedded in the Institute's active multidisciplinary environment, thereby challenging thinking with the overall aim of developing new, sustainable collaborations.

Fellows are fully integrated into the BSI community. During their stay in Durham, Fellows are given the same status as other BSI members and are encouraged to propose workshops and are eligible to apply for funding through the BSI funding schemes.

To find out more about BSI support for a Fellowship application or whilst a Fellow is visiting please contact alex.probert@durham.ac.uk.

Fellowships are currently available through the following schemes. In each of these schemes the Fellow is hosted by an academic within Durham University rather than by the Institute itself.
