Call for Research Projects Fondazione Pisana per la Scienza/Fondazione Telethon (FPS/FT)

The call is open to researchers of all levels of seniority who demonstrate the ability to formulate and conduct an independent line of research, but in synergy with the scientific activities of the FPS itself. Project funding provides salary coverage for the applicant for the entire duration of the project (to be established on the basis of the seniority of the researcher), plus a maximum budget of 80 thousand euro/year for research expenses and a duration of three years. The Host Institute will be Fondazione Pisana per la Scienza ONLUS. Based on their performance and on project success, FPS may invite proponents to join its permanent research staff.
