Novo Nordisk fellowships

Oxford University is currently recruiting four Postdoctoral Research Fellows and one Clinical Research Training Fellows as part of the Novo Nordisk Fellowship Program at the University of Oxford.

Novo Nordisk fellowship program

Applications are invited from basic scientists and clinicians wishing to undertake research with a focus on diabetes, cardiometabolism, liver and renal disease. Each fellowship is fully funded for three years. These prestigious fellowships are open to outstanding candidates of any nationality.

Please note that applicants for the Postdoctoral Research Fellowships must be no more than three years post PhD at the start of the fellowship (Autumn 2020). Please note that while we will consider all applications, the funding provided for the Clinical Research Training Fellowship will only cover home/EU DPhil fees.
