Bursaries and fellowships

Several bursaries and fellowships are awarded each year to BSPR members that are either students (MSc and Ph.D.), post-docs or technical staff. For the BSPR conference 2019 in Southampton (1-3 July 2019) we will offer ten student travel bursaries and two MJ Dunn Fellowships. We also offer bursaries for students and technical staff to attend other proteomics-related conferences of their choice.

Student and technical staff Bursaries

Students (MSc and Ph.D.) and technical staff awarded a bursary will receive £250 to help cover meeting registration, accommodation and travel expenses for the BSPR 2019 or another proteomics conference such as HUPO.

To apply, please send a brief CV, a statement saying why you wish to attend the meeting and an abstract of the work that you plan to present to Karin Barnouin ([email protected]) and John Timms ([email protected]).
