Applications to YERUN Research Mobility Awards 2022 are now open!

Are you an early career researcher from a YERUN institution looking for international research collaboration? Then don’t miss the opportunity to apply to the YERUN Research Mobility Awards 2022!

The YERUN Research Mobility Awards (YRMA) are competitive awards for early career researchers (PhD candidates and post-docs) equivalent to Euraxess Research Profiles R1 (up to the point of PhD) and R2 (PhD holders, post-doc or equivalent who are not yet fully independent or until 8 years since completion of PhD) from YERUN Universities

The scheme supports researchers to establish new research collaborations within the YERUN network, either in a physical or in a virtual format. The programme provides a platform to:

  • work with other YERUN academics and researchers on a research project, publication, or new research collaborative activity;
  • promote multidisciplinary research across YERUN institutions;
  • enrich the research and training opportunities for PhD students, early career and postdoctoral scholars within YERUN;
  • foster synergies between YERUN’s work and priorities and the work of researchers fromYERUN institutions.

This year, the scheme will award up to 40 collaborations. Have a look at the 2022 call to know more about the YRMAs and to see what is required in the application. We strongly encourage you to seek the letter of support from your host department as soon as possible.
