The Novo Nordisk Foundation-Oxford Postdoctoral Fellowship Programme aims to support the next generation of the highest calibre of researchers in the areas of natural and technical sciences or biotechnology. The research projects supported in the programme can range from basic research to innovation, and should be of interdisciplinary nature with potential applications in human health or sustainability.

The successful applicant will have a significant association to the Danish education system or research environment as well as have established contact with a faculty member here at the University of Oxford who has committed to being the primary research mentor for the duration of the 3-4 year fellowship. Examples of significant association to Denmark would include by having graduated from a Danish University or by having several years of research experience at a Danish institution and a clear intention of returning to Denmark after the stay abroad. Applicants will have obtained a PhD degree within 5 years of the fellowship start date.

The promising researchers will spend approximately three years at the University of Oxford before approximately a year at a Danish university or other public or non-profit research institution. The fellowships are funded by the Novo Nordisk Foundation.

The next deadline is on 22nd February 2023. Please email as soon as possible or by 31st Jan 2023 at the latest if you are interested in applying to this opportunity with a primary research mentor based in Oxford Physics. Please cc in your Oxford Physics research mentor and include the details of the Danish host institution you intend to apply through. Our Research Facilitation Team will then be able to advise on the next steps to completing your application.
