Applications for the L’Oréal-UNESCO UK and Ireland Fellowships For Women In Science open on 1 February 2014.
Four outstanding female post-doctoral scientists in the UK or Ireland will each be granted a fellowship worth £15,000 each, or the equivalent value in Euros for candidates in Ireland.
The Fellowships were launched in 2007 and provide flexible and practical help to female post-doctoral researchers. The winners may choose to spend their fellowship grants in any way that is helpful to them in furthering their research, from buying lab equipment, to hiring an assistant or paying for childcare costs.
The finalists will be selected by a panel of eminent scientists chaired by Prof. Pratibha Gai, including Prof. John Pethica FRS and Prof. Dame Janet Thornton FRS.
The closing date for applications is Friday 14th March 2014.

The programme is run in partnership with the UK National Commission for UNESCO and the Irish National Commission for UNESCO, with the support of the Royal Society.
