Description

The Italian Association for Cancer Research (AIRC) is inviting applications to the International Cancer Research Fellowships (iCARE) program, a funding scheme intended to promote the mobility of experienced researchers to and from Italy.

This AIRC International Cancer Research Fellowships program has received funding from the European Union’s Seventh Framework Program for research, technological development and demonstration under grant agreement n. 609284.

This program is open to highly qualified post-doctoral fellows or equivalent who wish to broaden their experience in oncologic research, and consists of three different types of fellowships, each for a duration of two years:

Outgoing fellowships: for researchers who have worked in Italy for more than three years out of the last four years, interested in a research experience in a scientific institution located in a different country than Italy.

Incoming Fellowships:

for non-Italian scientists interested in a research experience in a scientific institution located in Italy.

Reintegration Fellowships:

for Italian researchers who have worked in a country outside Italy for at least two out of the last three years, and who wish to return and work in a research center in Italy.

Eligibility

To apply for AIRC International Cancer Research Fellowships , applicants

‣ must either be in possession of a doctoral degree, independently of the time taken to acquire it, or 

‣ have at least four years of full-time equivalent research experience (including the period of research training) after the degree which formally allowed them to embark on a doctorate in the country in which the degree was obtained or in the country where the fellowship is taking place. 

‣ Example: Italian applicants not holding a PhD must have at least four years of full research experience after the attainment of a laurea magistralis in order to be eligible.

‣ Candidates who only have a “laurea breve/triennale” are not eligible.

‣ In addition, the following eligibility criteria specific for each type of mobility fellowship must be met:

Outgoing fellowships:

‣ applicants must have legally resided and have had their main activity (work, studies, etc.) in Italy for at least three out of the last four years prior to the relevant deadline for submission; 

‣ the Host Institution’s premises must be located in a different country than Italy;

‣ applicants must not have resided or carried out their main activity (work, studies, etc.) in the country of the host organization for more than twelve months in the three years prior to the relevant deadline for submission.

Incoming fellowships: 

‣ applicants must be non-Italian;

‣ the Host Institution’s premises must be located in Italy;

‣ applicants must not have resided or carried out their main activity (work, studies, etc.) in Italy for more than twelve months in the three years prior to the relevant deadline for submission.

Reintegration fellowships:

‣ applicants must be Italian; the Host Institution’s premises must be located in Italy.

‣ Applicants must not have resided or carried out their main activity (work, studies, etc.) in Italy for more than twelve months in the three years prior to the relevant deadline for submission.

Selection Criteria for AIRC International Cancer Research Fellowships

‣ Three review criteria will be used to evaluate applications. Reviewers will assign a score to each section; for each evaluator, the global score of an application (range: 0–100; 100 for the most competitive) will be calculated as the sum of the three sub-scores. The review criteria are:

‣ Quality of the Host Institution (score range: 0-45). Reviewers will evaluate the quality of the Host Institution (laboratories, facilities, training potential also in complementary skills) as well as the competence of the head of the hosting laboratory (in terms of expertise in the field, track record, international standing and ability to provide mentoring).

‣ Curriculum vitae of the applicant (score range 0-35) Reviewers will evaluate the applicant’s education/transcripts, track record, previous mobility (transnational and/or inter-sectorial), and consistency between the fellow’s profile and research project.

‣ Research proposal (score range: 0-20) The research project will be judged based on its relevance to cancer, innovation, feasibility, and overall scientific/technological quality. To avoid funding applications with a noncompetitive research plan, the average of the scores assigned by each of the three reviewers to this section must be at least 10.

Notification for AIRC International Cancer Research Fellowships

‣ Notification of results will be in September 16, 2015.
