To promote the advancement of talented international researchers at the highest levels of the institution, the University of Groningen has initiated the prestigious Rosalind Franklin Fellowship programme. This ambitious programme has been running since 2007.

The University Medical Center Groningen (UMCG) is linked to the University of Groningen (UG). Research, teaching, training and patient care are closely integrated. Research facilities are excellent. The UMCG’s mission is ‘Building the Future of Health’ with research on Healthy Ageing as its main focus. Research is embedded in the UMCG research institutes: GUIDE (drug research an chronic diseases in relation to ageing), C.R.C.G. (Oncology), SHARE (health research), BCN-Brain (ageing brain), and Kolff Institute (biomaterials for the elderly).

Rosalind Franklin Fellowships positions

We have sixTenure Track positions for talented female researchers.

Since the focus of the UMCG is on 'Healthy Ageing', underscored by the recently initiated building of a 'European Research Institute for the Biology of Ageing' (ERIBA) for fundamental ageing research, candidates with affinity to this field of research are especially encouraged to apply for a Fellowship.
