New training opportunity: funded places on Bioinformatics course

CONNECTED is pleased to open another new training opportunity to our network members…

We will fully fund two places on a bioinformatics course in Sweden. The course starts on 20 January 2020, so the application window is a small one, closing on 28 November.

Before reading further please be aware:

  • This is a commitment from 20 January to 24 March, at short notice
  • You will need to investigate entry-to-Sweden requirements relevant to your own home country, for admittance to Sweden, again bearing in mind the short notice.

‘Bioinformatics’ takes place from Monday 20 January to Tuesday 24 March 2020 inclusive, at The Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences, Uppsala, Sweden.

CONNECTED will fully fund all course fees, travel, accommodation and subsistence for two applicants.

Preference will be given to network members based in DAC-list countries. The funding body that the CONNECTED Network receives funding from stipulates that full-time students are not eligible to apply. Part-time students are eligible if they also have an employment research contract with their organisation which extends at least until the end of the course.

Applications are now open, closing at midnight on Thursday 28 November, using this short application form. Applicants will be notified of the outcome no later than Friday 6 December.

Successful applicants will be required to provide a short report on the course and its impact on their professional practice.

If you want to apply for this opportunity, you must be a member of the CONNECTED Network. You can join free, here.
