List of fellowships and funding agencies in biological research



There are basically two ways for finding a PhD/Postdoc/Job: (i) look for current offers of available positions; (ii) look for funding that will allow you to develop your own project and work with a particular researcher.

Here we present a list of funding agencies from different countries and websites that can help you find the most appropriate alternative for you. We also added information on funding sources that might support you when attending conferences and/or developing small projects. Note that this list is incomplete and is a work in progress. Feel free to send any information you might find to: This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.


·        Look for current offers of available positions

Sometimes, you can find PhD and postdoctoral position posted on researchers’ and institutes’ websites, journals, blogs, facebook and/oron email forums, so it is best if you spend some time searching on the internet.

There are many general sites, but you can narrow your search to a particular research area or country. You can sign in to many of these sites and receive updates on your email.

·         EVOL-DIR (mailing list with PhDs, Postdocs, Jobs, Conferences announcements. Mostly US-based positions, but offers from other countries appear from time to time) -

·         ECOLOG-L (mailing list of the Ecological Society of America. Mostly US-based positions, but offers from other countries appear from time to time) -

  • Ecodiff (mailing list of the French Ecological Society; open to non-members) -

Looking for funding when you already know where and who you would like to work with


If you already know with whom you want to work, and that researcher has agreed to host you although he/she has no funding available for you, you should try to find a fellowship that will support you. As you will see below, there are many alternatives, with some of them being specific for the country where you want to work. There are also many foundations offering fellowships for doing research on particular topics, or for people to move to certain countries. For most of these grants you will need to put together a project proposal.



First you will find some funding agencies that have an international scope, and afterward we present some information by country.
