This project has received funding from the European Union's Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under the Marie Sklodowska-Curie grant agreement No 713406

The European Respiratory Society (ERS) is pleased to announce that the RESPIRE3 post-doctoral fellowship programme has been awarded co-funding by the European Union (EU) under the Horizon 2020 (H2020) / Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions (MSCA) / COFUND programme.

RESPIRE3 is an international, inter-sectoral and inter-disciplinary programme providing Marie Skłodowska-Curie post-doctoral research fellowships to early stage scientists with the potential to become the leaders of tomorrow in the respiratory field. It builds on the previous RESPIRE1 and RESPIRE2 programmes. Find out more about these programmes' impact and benefits.

More in particular, the RESPIRE3 programme offers more flexibility and options through 2-year European and 3-year Global fellowships. Its aims are to:

  • Promote excellent science in respiratory research in Europe and worldwide through transnational mobility;
  • Enable Europe to become a hub for the exchange of scientists, actively involved in respiratory medicine in both academia and non-academic sector;
  • Foster the implementation of novel and innovative techniques and therapies;
  • Gather expertise from various fields, even those not traditionally associated with respiratory research.

Do not miss the opportunity to become the next RESPIRE3 Marie Sklodowska-Curie fellow through the 1st call (deadline: 1 March 2017). The programme provides attractive working conditions as well as has a strong focus on career development.
