Opportunities for Early-Career Scientists

Passionate about having a career that will improve science while protecting animals but don’t know where to start? You’ve come to the right place! There are many opportunities for early-career scientists (including master’s or PhD students, postdoctoral fellows, and new researchers) to gain knowledge, hands-on training, and funding for research in non-animal toxicity testing, including in vitro and in silico methods.

Internship Opportunities

There are job and internship opportunities at many organisations that focus only on in vitro or in silico research as well as openings within large companies that have in vitro and in silico departments. If you’re interested in learning more about science internships available in your field, please contact us at [email protected].

Travel Awards

Numerous travel awards are offered each year to attend scientific workshops and conferences around the world, covering expenses such as airfare, hotel accommodation, and registration.

Research Grants

Grants provided by government agencies, companies, and other organisations are a great way to secure funding for research involving the development and promotion of non-animal methods that may not be available at your institution. [Note: some of the grants listed below may not be currently available but are offered on a continuing basis. Be sure to check the websites later for new deadlines].
