The European Respiratory Society presents the RESPIRE 2 Post-doctoral Research Fellowships Programme co-funded by the European Union under the PEOPLE Marie Curie Actions COFUND programme of the EU’s Seventh Research Framework Programme (FP7).

RESPIRE 2 Fellowships are funded with the objectives of enabling scientists, investigators and clinicians from any discipline, as well as allied healthcare professionals, with advanced research records, to carry out basic, translational, or clinical research projects in the field of respiratory science through a 24-month work period in a foreign country in Europe thus strengthening the fellows’ scientific mobile careers and furthering top-research in the respiratory specialty.

Fellowships are open to all nationalities but need to be undertaken in a European country other than the candidate’s own, within a certified RESPIRE 2 Host Centre.
