The Novo Nordisk Foundation invites applications for its emerging investigator grants within plant science, agriculture, and food biotechnology in the Nordic region. This enables research leaders within plant science, agriculture, and food biotechnology in the Nordic countries to establish their own research group or to further strengthen their recently started group

The proposed research should address major challenges within plant, agricultural, and food science associated with developing sustainable agriculture and food production. The research should be based on life science research disciplines. The research projects should preferably include one or more of the following topics:

The applicant must at the time of application be at the level of senior postdoc, senior researcher, assistant professor, or newly employed associate professor (or any level equivalent to one of these positions). Ideally, applicants should have 4-8 years of research experience after having received their PhD degree (leave of absence not included). Minor deviations will be tolerated if they can be justified.

Researchers from across the world with the academic potential to establish an independent research program at a university or other non-profit research institution in Denmark, Finland, Iceland, Norway, or Sweden are eligible to apply for the Emerging Investigator grant. This host institution administrates the grant.
