Applications are now open for the International Alliance of Research Universities’ Early-Career Collaboration Grants. The International Alliance of Research Universities (IARU) is a network of 11 of some of the world’s leading research-intensive universities, dedicated to tackling global challenges, promoting educational exchange, and supporting professional joint working. Cambridge is a founding member and is currently serving as Chair. The other members of the Alliance are Oxford, ETH Zürich, the University of Copenhagen, the University of Cape Town, the National University of Singapore, Peking University, the University of Tokyo, the Australian National University, the University of California Berkeley, and Yale.The Early-Career Collaboration Grants scheme has been created to increase opportunities for in-person global collaboration for early-career academics in the wake of the pandemic. Researchers at Cambridge who have submitted their PhD within the last 10 years (excluding Postdocs), can apply for up to 5,000 USD to help meet the costs of a short-term research stay at another IARU university. Visits can take place any time between 1 October 2023 and 1 October 2024. Applicants are asked to submit letters of support from their Cambridge department and their intended host institution along with the application form, and detail plans for how their visit will help to foster additional collaboration between the two universities in the future. Applications should be sent to the IARU Secretariat by 1 June 2023 at firstname.lastname@example.org. For full details, please visit the IARU website. If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact the Secretariat.
