Call for Proposals
Funding of Core Facilities
The deadline for the 2018 Funding of Core Facilities has been expired. Thank you very much for all the submitted proposals. We will inform you on further calls on this website.
For successful proposals, it is mandatory to provide a detailed implementation plan for the envisaged technology, including a long term perspective for successful operation and to create a website. Also, the add on value of the specific measure for the entire HMLS research community has to be documented. Funding may be used for technical equipment, consumables or (part time) personnel. Proposals for proportionate funding matched with additional funding sources are possible. Proposals also have to consider the sustainability aspect, i.e. how will the new technology platform or the new instrument or service operate after the funding when HMLS expires. Funding for room, construction, and maintenance costs is not offered by HMLS and has to be provided by applicant(s).
Proposals may be submitted by members of the Molecular Life Sciences institutions (Faculties of Biosciences Heidelberg, Faculties of Medicine Heidelberg and Mannheim, DKFZ, EMBL, MPI-mF).
If you should have any further questions, do not hesitate to contact the HMLS Project Management Office at + 49 (0) 6221-54 51201 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Support for Initiating Interdisciplinary HMLS Research Activities
Jan Korbel (EMBL) and Stefan Pfister (Heidelberg University Hospital) will receive the 2018 HMLS Award.
It is one of the primary goals of HMLS in Field of Focus 1 to promote the initiation of novel interdisciplinary research activities, such as graduate colleges, SPPs and SFBs, to harness the broad synergy potential on the Heidelberg Campus. During the planning phase, these initiatives require a number of measures, ranging from drafting pre-proposals to organizing start-up meetings with international participation. The research council will support these initiatives by providing funds for employment of secretary staff, travel costs for kick-off meetings and related activities. Proposals may be submitted by members of the Heidelberg Molecular Life Sciences institutions. Funding decision will be made by the Research Council.
Heidelberg Molecular Life Sciences Investigator Award
Call for nomination for the 2018 HMLS Investigator Award. Deadline for submission is July 15th, 2018.
The annual Heidelberg Molecular Life Sciences (HMLS) Investigator Award is awarded to an outstanding scientist who is actively engaged in Life Science research in Heidelberg. The award recognizes excellence in two allied areas: research and strategic development in the Life Sciences in Heidelberg. Nominees are eligible for this program if they have succeeded in initiating innovative actions to foster scientific career development of undergraduates, graduates, PhDs, and Postdocs.
Potential candidates may be proposed by members of the Molecular Life Sciences institutions (Faculty of Biosciences Heidelberg, Faculties of Medicine Heidelberg and Mannheim, DKFZ, EMBL, MPI-mF). Application of the award on one's own behalf is not admissible. The recipient will be selected by the HMLS Research Council.
In the framework of the Heidelberg Research Center for Molecular Medicine (HRCMM) of the Excellence Initiative, the Molecular Medicine Partnership Unit (MMPU) is offering fellowships of two years on a regular basis.
This Fellowship is awarded for a period of 17-18 months to early career clinician scientists undergoing medical specialist training with a strong interest in molecular medicine research topics. The fellows will be integrated within the clinical setting of the Medical Faculty and conduct their research in collaboration with an EMBL/MMPU group.
Further information about the application process and documents can be found at the MMPU webpage [Homepage]
