Female scientists on parental leave are invited to apply for a fellowship

After a first funding period of four candidates who subsequently all obtained employment in academia and related fields, BrainLinks-BrainTools is now looking for new applicants for a Welcome Back Fellowship.

The goal of this scholarship is to encourage female scientists to resume their career after a break due to family commitments. By being provided with a secure work space suiting to their living conditions, the fellows are supported in regaining the pensum necessary for an academic career step by step.

A report based on the experiences of former fellows can be found here.
