V4 Early Career Researcher Development Programme

Virus Vector Vice Versa (V4) is a fully-funded ten-day residential course at the University of Bristol, UK (10 – 21 June 2019).

The purpose of V4: The CONNECTED Development Programme for Early Career Researchers (ECRs) is to create a cohort of ECRs with a joint understanding of virology and entomology which enables them to collaborate effectively on the research challenges of plant vector borne diseases in Africa.

The programme will combine:

  • scientific talks
  • general lab training skills
  • specific virology and entomology lecture and practical work
  • workshops
  • desk-based projects, and
  • soft skills training.

Applications are now closed. Places were awarded by competitive application, and we are aiming to attract both virologists and entomologists. Funding is available to cover travel, accommodation, subsistence and all training costs of successful applicants.

V4 will run from Monday 10 – Friday 21 June 2019 inclusive, at The School of Biological Sciences, University of Bristol, UK.
