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.)
The following countries are in the European Economic Area:
Republic of Ireland
NB while Switzerland is not in the EEA, Swiss nationals have the same rights as EEA nationals.
