Italian Association for Cancer Research International Cancer Research Fellowships
Electronic submission deadline May 19, 2014
Paper submission (postmark) deadline May 22, 2014
The Italian Association for Cancer Research (AIRC), with partial financial support of the European Commission (7th Framework Programme: Marie Curie Actions – People – COFUND), will award a total of fourteen International Cancer Research Fellowships to highly qualified post-doctoral fellows or equivalent who wish to broaden their experience in oncologic research. This funding scheme is intended to promote the mobility of experienced researchers to and from Italy, 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 criteria for applicants
At the time of the relevant deadline for submission and regardless of the type of fellowship, 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 fellowship MUST be met:
• 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 hosting organization for more than twelve months in the three years prior to the relevant deadline for submission.
• 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.
• Applicants must be Italian.
Financial support must be requested through the specific section of the online form. The financial support provided comprises:
- living and mobility allowance: this allowance is calculated multiplying a flat rate of € 50.000/year by the correction coefficient of the country of the Host Institution.
- travel allowance: up to € 1000/year, to cover a roundtrip ticket/year from the place of origin (or the home country, whichever applies) to the country of the Host Institution;
- research cost contribution: up to € 1500/year to participate to a scientific meeting.
The Living and mobility allowance will be used by the Host Institution to pay the fellow’s stipend monthly, applying the local taxes in place; in addition, in conformity with the conditions set forth in the full employment contract, the Host Institution will also deduct the mandatory employer’s contributions (e.g. pension provision): the amount remaining from the Living and mobility allowance, after the employer’s contributions have been paid and the income taxes deducted, is the fellow’s net salary. For Incoming and Reintegration fellowships: please note that the fellow cannot be taken on with a fellowship provision (“borsa di studio”), but must be hired under a regular work contract (“contratto di lavoro a tempo determinato”, or “contratto di collaborazione a progetto – co.co.pro.”). For all types of fellowships, in case the award is granted, the Legal Representative of the Host Institution and the Fellow will have to sign the “Declaration of conformity” which certifies that the fellow is hired with a full employment contract. The Living and mobility allowance will be transferred by AIRC to the Host Institution, after a specific agreement between the two parties is set up and the Declaration of conformity has been signed.
The travel allowance and the research cost contribution will be directly refunded by AIRC upon presentation of appropriate documentation.
A renewal request (first year progress report) must be submitted at the end of the first year of funding, and a detailed final report (scientific and administrative) must be prepared at the end of the funding period.
