@ERC_Research – @NSF Initiative for Career Awardees and Postdoctoral Fellows @VioBio_Lab



The European Research Council-National Science Foundation has launched an initiative for research visits to laboratories founded by the European Research Council (ERC), addressed to NSF Career Awardees and NSF Postdoctoral Fellows.

The Visual Optics and Biophotonics Lab (Institute of Optics, Madrid), as a recipient of the ERC Advanced Grant “Bio-inspired optical correction of presbyopia” (IP: Prof. Susana Marcos) invites NSF-funded awardees and fellows to consider this opportunity to explore areas of mutual interest that can be pursued through this collaboration. The scheme funds single and long-term visits (i.e. 6-12 months) and the time spent in Europe will be in addition to the duration of the fellowship (for NSF postdoctoral fellowships). Submission of specific proposals should be made to the NSF by the eligible US-based researchers, starting in early 2013
