Investigator Awards build on our strategic goal of supporting the brightest researchers with the best ideas, and offer flexible funding support for researchers at all career stages. These may be newly appointed lecturers, mid-career researchers, up to senior or emeritus professors.
The Trust has combined its New Investigator and Senior Investigator Award schemes to create a single type of Investigator Award, providing all who hold established posts in eligible organisations with the same opportunity to obtain funding. All applicants are considered according to their career stage and experience, with any career breaks or time out of academic research taken into consideration.
Joint Investigator Awards are available to support two researchers with complementary expertise working closely together on a shared proposal.
