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.

Applicants must have a PhD, significant postdoctoral research experience, and have made important contributions to their area of research via publications, patents, software development or an impact on policy. 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.

Fellowships cover salary, which is determined by the host organisation, a supplement of £7,500, personal removal expenses, research expenses and an annual contribution of £11,000 towards indirect and estate costs. Fellowships are tenable for five years, but fellows may further apply for three more years.
