European Committee for Treatment & Research in Multiple Sclerosis (ECTRIMS): Nurse Training Fellowship Programme 2017

ECTRIMS offers a postdoctoral research fellowship exchange programme for young neuroscientists to facilitate their conduct of and training in basic, clinical or applied research related to multiple sclerosis (MS).

The Fellowship must be spent in a European research laboratory or clinic.The goal of the programme is to maximise exchange of information and to help grow the pool of well-trained research scientists focused on problems in MS.

Funding & Duration

Nursing fellowships are available for a 6-month or 1-year period (or any duration between 6 months and 1 year).

ECTRIMS will provide a personal stipend of €55,000 (approx AUD $79,000) for 1 year or €27,500 (approx AUD $39,000) for 6 months (stipend will be prorated for periods between 6 months and 1 year).The stipend is intended to provide living wages to the fellow.

ECTRIMS will also provide economy round-trip transportation between the successful candidate’s home location to the training site at the beginning and end of the training period.


Citizens of any country are eligible to apply to this programme; however, the nursing care training must be undertaken in a European institution or clinic.

Candidates must have a nursing qualification (a general nursing degree with or without special nursing credentials, such as neurological nursing, rehabilitation nursing, etc.) and be licensed for nursing practice in their home country.

It is anticipated that successful candidates will have some, but not necessarily extensive, full or part time MS nursing experience at their home institution and will return to their home institution after training, better prepared to excel in MS nursing and to better support people living with MS and the MS clinical care team.

In general, successful candidates will be 55 years of age or younger, and will anticipate continuing in their MS nursing careers upon completion of the training.
