TRENAL Postdoc Grants


TRENAL (“Translational kidney research – from physiology to clinical application”) is an interdisciplinary netwok project that aims at leveraging the achievements of basic kidney research and translating them into novel diagnostic and therapeutic strategies. TRENAL unites nephrologists, physiologists, nephropathologists and basic researchers from Friedrich-Alexander-Universität Erlangen-Nürnberg (FAU), Yale University (YALE) and University College London (UCL) and the Max Planck Institute for the Physics of Light. TRENAL is funded by the German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD).

The call for TRENAL Postdoc Grants is now open. TRENAL gives postdoctoral researchers currently working at YALE or UCL the opportunity to join a research group at FAU/ Universitätsklinikum Erlangen for a period of up to six months.

The research groups involved in TRENAL are listed here. The research should focus on the fields covered by the TRENAL project. The stay should start, at the latest, in September 2016.

Awardees will receive a travel aid (125 EUR for UCL researchers, 700 EUR for Yale researchers) and a monthly stipend of 2000 EUR while working at FAU/ Universitätsklinikum Erlangen.

As part of the application please submit an academic CV and a project outline. They should be sent to Felix Knauf, MD, by May 15th. Researchers who are interested in this opportunity, but have not yet identified a research group they would like to work with, are invited to contact Dr. Knauf for advice before submitting their application.
