Prestigious postdoc scheme opens for 2010
6 August 2009
This scheme is for newly qualified postdocs with a burning biomedical research question to investigate. It provides a chance to begin an independent research career and work in some of the best labs in the UK and overseas.
These awards, first made by the Trust in 2007, support the most promising newly qualified postdoctoral researchers by providing £250 000 over four years to cover their salary, research costs and travel/subsistence. These awards may be taken up from July 2010.
Preliminary applications must be received by 2 November 2009 and full applications will be invited by 1 December 2009, for completion by 1 February 2010. Candidates should have no more than 12 months' postdoctoral experience by February 2010.
For further information on the applications process and a taste of what it's like to be a Sir Henry Wellcome Postdoctoral Fellow, watch the video featuring some of the current Fellows. Find the video and details on how to apply on the scheme pages.
