Today the University of Groningen Board announced the award of six new Rosalind Franklin Fellowships, including one to our postdoctoral fellow Dr Iris Jonkers, who joined the department last year.

A Rosalind Franklin Fellowship is a prestigious 5-year grant for women at an early stage of their academic careers, but with a proven track record of excellence. The fellowships are highly competitive. This funding will allow Iris to establish an independent research programme and, if successful, will lead to a more permanent academic position.
