In this editor’s view rarely do opportunities as good as this come along for aspiring digital health innovators working on early warning systems for infectious diseases: I-Sense, in UCL, has announced that applications are now open for the 2nd round of I-Sense Mobility Fellowships – designed to support incoming researchers from academia and industry to work with I-Sense.
They are currently inviting incoming fellowship proposals from academia and industry in the following areas – mobile phone-connected point of care tests, optics and microfluidics, machine learning, statistics, data security, app development and dashboards. Applications from other areas are also welcome. All incoming fellows must be hosted in an I-Sense group.
Fellowships should be between 1 week and 6 months and a maximum allowance of £10,000 per Fellowship is available (80% of directly incurred costs). This funding is available to cover travel and subsistence costs only. Applications will be considered on a quarterly basis. The next deadline is 31st October 2016. Please visit their website for more information and to download the application form.
This funding is supported by the i-sense Partnership Resource Fund (PRF), led by Professor Vince Emery. The PRF aims to grow i-sense into a self-sustained hub of innovation, by building networks of excellence including external academic, clinical and industry partners.
