Opportunities for Entrepreneurial Fellowships in photonics at Stanford University, USA


Are you interested in progressing your career in photonics by spending 1-2 years at Stanford University?


According to BIS “A recent study found that ...UK researchers who spent at least two years abroad and returned were 66% more productive than the average.”


The RCUK funding for SU2P Entrepreneurial Fellowships has now been fully committed. However, SU2P would like to continue to support the development of early career researchers and provide them with international experience with one of our US partners, Stanford and Caltech.
There are a number of fellowships schemes that permit and encourage international experience. The current call for Marie-Curie International Outgoing Fellowships opened on the 14th March 2013.
If you would like to gain international experience with one of our US partners and are considering applying for one of these fellowships, please get in touch with us at fellowships@su2p.com and we will support you in making your application. If you are successful with your application we will invite you to become an SU2P Entrepreneurial Fellow and derive the benefits of the support that we are able to provide. (Applicants should NOT contact Stanford University directly at this time. Details of the research themes of the working groups of SPRC can be found at http://photonics.stanford.edu/research.)
If you are interestedin the 2013 call for individual application for Marie Curie International Outgoing Fellowships which has a closing date in August 2013, please contact fellowships@su2p.com now.
SU2P is a collaboration between the Scottish Universities (Glasgow, Heriot Watt, St. Andrews and Strathclyde) and Stanford and Caltech in California. The SU2P Fellowships are to enable exceptionally talented early career researchers to spend one or more years at Stanford University or one of its affiliated laboratories. The aim of the Fellowships is to allow successful applicants to develop and grow their research and entrepreneurial skills under mentoring provided by Stanford Photonics Research Centre (SPRC).
