After the conference, we will select and mentor outstanding candidates in writing Fellowship applications and/or offer the opportunity to move existing Fellowships to the John Innes Centre.

Candidates who win Fellowships will be considered for transfer onto tenure-track at three years, and if transferred, for tenure at five years. Considerable additional resources will be provided to Fellows by the Centre. For further advice, contact Professor Mark Buttner
