Many challenging research questions exist in the under-explored terrain between traditional disciplines. The Integrated Science Lab (IceLab) works to promote and facilitate transdisciplinary collaborations – with a focus on research that integrates theoretical, computational, and empirical work.
IceLab has been helping new ideas spark between researchers successfully with the Lunch Pitches and other initiatives, but the current multidisciplinary postdoctoral fellowship program goes several steps farther. IceLab is pleased to invite teams of two or more researchers to submit novel multidisciplinary project proposals, to help get a new project going that needs novel collaboration across disciplines and methodologies.
The top three selected projects will each access funding for a 2-year postdoctoral fellowship. These shared postdoctoral fellows, supervised by multidisciplinary teams of researchers spanning departments at Umeå University or the Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences, will enable new collaborations to grow from an idea into tangible new research.
