The Wellcome Trust and the Royal Society invite applications for the Sir Henry Dale fellowships. These support postdoctoral researchers who aim to become independent scientists leading their own groups in the field of public health.
Fellowships are tenable for five years and provide a basic salary, a fellowship supplement of £7,500, personal removal expenses, research expenses and an annual contribution of £11,000 towards indirect and estate costs.
Applicants must have a PhD and significant research experience. They must be driving their research and be ready to lead an independent research programme. They must have sponsorship from a head of department or equivalent at an eligible host organisation in the UK who must guarantee the fellow with support to lead their own independent research, space and resources during the award period, and the status and benefits of other academic staff of similar seniority.
Initial application deadline: 4 April 2018
