Call opens: 1st July 2014. Application deadline: 5th Novemeber 2014. Aimed at: Early career researchers from academia or industry who have demonstrated high potential, and who wish to establish an independent academic career focused on the translation of fundamental bioscience research. The current call will support the translation of basic plant science into crop science research. Nature of award: Awards are for 5 years, up to 2 fellowships are available, and include personal salary and a significant research support grant. Applications are welcome from candidates seeking flexible working arrangements (e.g. part-time); see the Fellowships handbook for further information (see downloads). Translational Fellowships are distinct and, in addition to the standard BBSRC David Phillips fellowships, are awarded annually. It will be mandatory for Translational Fellows to incorporate an interchange with relevant stakeholder(s), either during or after the fellowship term. Following the award of a Translational Fellowship, additional support will be made available for the interchange through our FLexible Interchange Programme (FLIP).

The Ecology and Evolution of Infectious Diseases program supports research on the ecological, evolutionary, and socio-ecological principles and processes that influence the transmission dynamics of infectious diseases. The central theme of submitted projects must be quantitative or computational understanding of pathogen transmission dynamics. The intent is discovery of principles of infectious disease transmission and testing mathematical or computational models that elucidate infectious disease systems. Projects should be broad, interdisciplinary efforts that go beyond the scope of typical studies. They should focus on the determinants and interactions of transmission among humans, non-human animals, and/or plants.
