Want to use your research knowledge in a different environment? July 2, 2012

Permission assumed as promoting BBSRC Scheme.

The Research Development Office at Queen Mary has recently brought the following scheme to my attention. The BBSRC is funding a new initiative that could be useful for people that are thinking of a career change as it funds experience in a sector that differs from academic research.

BBSRC’s FLexible Interchange Programme (FLIP) supports the movement of people from one environment to a different one to exchange knowledge/technology/skills, developing bioscience research/researchers and addressing our strategic priorities.

FLIP awards provide flexible opportunities for individuals (“the interchangers”) moving between different organisations, disciplines and sectors at all stages in their career beyond the PhD (or equivalent).

More info about this programme can be found here.
