European Economic Area

In order to establish a relevant connection to the European Economic Area (EEA) you must be either:

  • a UK/EEA national
  • a non-EEA national who either has a relevant degree from a university in the UK or Republic of Ireland (ROI), or has worked in a UK or ROI university, hospital or institution for at least a continuous three year period.
  • We are sometimes willing to consider enquiries from a host university regarding an exceptional biomedical research scientist who does not fall within the categories above. (Does not apply to the Sir Henry Wellcome postdoctoral fellowship scheme.)
