Jake Westerberg granted with Human Frontier Science Program Award

6 April 2023

The International Human Frontier Science Program Organization (HFSPO) announced the 52 fellowship awards to the world’s most outstanding young life scientists, chosen from a total of 429 submitted applications. Jake Westerberg, researcher from the Netherlands Institute for Neuroscience, was granted with a HFSP long-term fellowship award for mapping the functional connectome for conscious perception under the supervision of Pieter Roelfsema. Congratulations Jake!

The HFSP Long-Term Fellowships are for postdoctoral scientists in biology. A total of 46 Long-Term Fellowships were awarded to the very best of the world’s young scientists who have proposed original approaches at the frontier of life science research. The HFSP fellowship program funds innovative, ground-breaking projects that have the potential to advance knowledge in the applicants’ field of study or open a new approach to a research problem. High risk research is supported.

Long-term fellowships provide 3 years of support for applicants with a degree in the life science to obtain training in a new area of research in an outstanding laboratory of their choice in another country. Applicants are expected to broaden their horizon and to move into a new research field that is different from their doctoral studies or previous postdoctoral training. The HFSP’s fellowships enjoy an excellent reputation!
