CEBEM (Center for Structural Biology from the Mercosur) call for access

the deadline for application has been extended to NOVEMBER 14TH 2022!!!

CEBEM is launching a first call for access to research infrastructure and/or the promotion of scientific collaborations. The call is open to graduate students, researchers and research facilities’ staff; priority will be given to applicants working in Latin America. Short visit (2-4 weeks) proposals will be favored, but shorter/longer stays will be considered. Applications will be received until Oct 31, 2022. Results will be informed in 2022, for the visits to take place in the first semester of 2023. Funding (up to USD 3000) will support travel/lodging expenses, as well as facility bench fees. Additionally, a 30% extra budget (up to 1000 USD) may be asked to support women with children under two years of age in order to cover caring costs.

Applications proposing visits between CEBEM nodes, as well as to or from CEBEM nodes connecting to other laboratories in Latin America and abroad, will be accepted. (Note: due to the supporting grant policies, travel to or from the USA cannot be considered).

CEBEM encourages proposals to perform data collection using research infrastructure that is not available at the applicants’ site, as well as requests for computing time/facilities, and other specific experiments within the areas of Structural Biology, Bioimaging and Integrative approaches. Please explore the facilities and research infrastructure offered at the different CEBEM nodes.

Applications should be sent in English by filling out this form.

The CEBEM Executive Committee, with the advice from a panel of experts, will evaluate the proposals based on scientific excellence, technical feasibility and available funds.

This call will be run on a regular basis at least twice a year: stay tuned for upcoming information: Instagram, Twitter, LinkedIn, YouTube.

CeBEM acknowledges support from the Chan Zuckerberg Initiative [grant “Building Bioimaging Capacity in South America”], aimed at integrating regional capacities in Structural Biology and Bioimaging, optimizing the use of sophisticated equipment and disseminating integrative approaches.
