Thomas Jefferson Fund Addressing 21st–Century Challenges through Transatlantic Research

February 7th, 2020 in Opportunities

Deadline: Feb 24, 2020

The most innovative projects involving significant transatlantic mobility, collaborative research activities, organization of joint workshops or conferences, publication of joint articles, and participation of younger researchers (PhDs) will receive the highest priority.

The grant covers travel expenses between France and the US, accommodation costs and a part of the organizational costs of joint conferences or publications. Partner researchers are encouraged to obtain « in kind » and/or « in cash » co-funding from their institutions or from other sources of funding to cover all other types of expenses necessary to the successful implementation of the joint research project.

Proposals must be jointly submitted by one American researcher and one French researcher at the beginning of their career, with mid- to long- term positions at a research or higher education institution in the United States or in France (post-doctorate level, assistant or associate professor, maître de conférences or chargé de recherche).

This project is for three fields: Humanities and Social Sciences (HSS) Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) Science for Society (Interdisciplinary STEM-HSS projects)
