Bertus Kemp Stipendium
Bertus Kemp was a biochemist at the University of Amsterdam, who was well known for his work on the biochemistry of connective tissue. He held a keen interest in prolyl hydroxylases and ATP synthase and incorporated azido-labelled substrate analogues in his research.
In the year 2020 the first annual ‘Bertus Kemp Stipendium’ of € 20.000 will be awarded to an early-stage (i.e. >2 years post-PhD, < 8 years) biochemical scientist in The Netherlands appointed at the University of Amsterdam, Vrije Universiteit, ACTA, AMOLF, NIN, NKI or Sanquin, who needs financial support to extend her/his network and initiate novel (inter)national collaborations for future applications of consortium grants. Funding can be used to cover (a) bench fee for experiments, including outsourced large-scale experiments; (b) an exchange visit to the collaborator lab to learn or employ a new technique; (c) an exchange visit of the collaborator to the main applicant for a lecture plus masterclass and brainstorming future collaborations. Once finished, the outcome of the project will be presented. The proposed research concerns studies on basic biochemical processes.
The application should consist of:
- A description of the proposed, novel collaboration and how this specific collaboration will catalyze future grant applications (max 400 words).
- A project description, including background, hypothesis, objectives, approach and intended deliverables such as a publication, methodology or follow-up grant proposal(s) (max 600 words).
- A budget proposal (by financial controller of the institute).
- A biosketch / Curriculum Vitae of the applicant, including a list of publications, highlighting the three most relevant publications.
Deadline proposal submission: March 1st 2021 at 14.00
