The Howard Hughes Medical Institute is aiming to help up to 35 US-trained young investigators establish independent research programs in their home countries. To do so, the institute has set aside $24 million for its International Early Career Scientist Program, wherein each young scientist chosen will be given $650,000 over five years. US-trained scientists working in one of 18 eligible countries, who've run their own labs for less than seven years, are eligible to apply for the program, which is "designed to give a boost to international scientists who return to their home country to do research after training in the United States," HHMI says. Applications will be accepted through February 23, 2011. More information about the program is available, here.
