The Linnaeus Centre for Bioinformatics (LCB) (please see http://www.lcb.uu.se) is a recently established highly active research center located at the Biomedical Centre (BMC), Uppsala, Sweden. Beinga joint initiative between Uppsala University and the Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences guarantees high quality cutting edge research ranging from microbial and mammalian genomics via computational functional genomics to molecular evolution. Prominent research disciplines in bioinformatics such as Biology, Computer Sciences, and Mathematics are combined in this unique research platform which also has access to the National Supercomputer Center (NSC) in Sweden.
In connection with the program Human Research Potential & the Socio-economic Knowledge Base: Access to Research Infrastructures (ARI) initiated and funded by the European Commission, the Linnaeus Centre for Bioinformatics is inviting application from research teams working in bioinformatics to gain access to its unique research infrastructure. The applying research teams must either be based at a university or working in the private/industrial sector within the Member States of the European Union or Associated States. For precise details on eligibility, please seehttp://cordis.europa.eu/improving/infrastructure/access.htm
Access can be granted from one or a few weeks up to 60 working days and can start any time after approval by an independent scientific board and the final approval by the European Commission. It includes infrastructural, logistical, technical, and scientific support as well as support for accommodation during the access.
Applications must be written in English and contain a short proposal (approx. 500-1000 words) describing the project to be carried out at the Linnaeus Center for Bioinformatics, a short curriculum vitae (approx. 1 page) and a publication list for each researcher expected to take part in the project, and the expected duration of the stay. The applications are to be sent to Dr. Katharina Huber, Linnaeus Centre for Bioinformatics, BMC, Box 598, 751 24 Uppsala, Sweden.
Deadlines for the applications are: Sep. 15th, 2002 (first deadline),March 15th, 2003 (second deadline), and Oct. 15th, 2003 (third deadline).
