NSERC funding opportunities in Human Frontier Science Program

Mon. Mar. 4, 2019

The Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada (NSERC) would like to bring to your attention the upcoming deadline for the Human Frontier Science Program (HFSP) 2020 Research Grants. These grants are given to international, interdisciplinary teams of researchers to focus on basic research in the life sciences. The principal applicant must be from an eligible country. Grants are divided into two categories:

Young Investigators’ Grants are awarded to teams of researchers, all of whom are within the first five years after obtaining an independent laboratory.

Program Grants are awarded to teams of independent researchers at any stage of their careers.

Candidates must initiate an application through the HFSP website by March 18, 2018, and the deadline for the submission of Letters of Intent to the competition is March 28, 2019. Consult HFSP’s Information and Guidelines for more details.

NSERC is a proud contributor to HFSP, and looks forward to the participation of Canadian talent in the program.
