The Wellcome Trust - DBT alliance is providing generous fellowships (about $350K for four years) at the Post-Doc Level for talented students to come to India. These fellowships also allow the student to spend a couple of years in a collaborator's lab abroad. These are internationally-reviewed, prestigious awards and will strengthen a student's CV if they are successful. Students need not be Indian citizens to apply. Please pass along the information below to students in your respective labs who may be interested in this.

The India Alliance is pleased to announce a new competition for the Early Career Fellowships. These Fellowships are for postdoctoral researchers, from anywhere in the world, to work in India. Preliminary applications due by 17 August 2011.
Early Career applicants have to identify a Fellowship Supervisor at the host Institution in India, in whose laboratory they can carry out their project. This is an opportunity for you and other senior scientists at your institution to recruit skilled postdoctoral researchers.
