The European network RepliFate is seeking 3 artists who are eager to work with research groups specialised in DNA replication, cell fates, and cancer research. Their artist in residence programme specifically involves a younger generation: the PhD students in the RepliFate Marie-Curie network.
Each artist will focus on working with 4 PhD students from across the network and get in touch with the labs and supervisors of the PhD students, including a residency phase. The programme aims at fostering transdisciplinary encounters between artists and scientists and their research in the RepliFate network
Each artist will focus on one of the predominant themes in the RepliFate research:
Faces of Stress and Malignance.
(In)Stability and Damage Repair.

- Access to and collaborative process with several researchers in the RepliFate network and an ongoing exchange with the scientific partners online and on-site over the course of 2 years.
- Flexibility in scheduling the on-site residency phase.
- Artist fee (artwork, residency, final presentation) of €6500.
