These fellowships provide support for outstanding postdoctoral scientists wishing to build their own UK-based independent research career addressing an important biomedical question.
Recipients of Sir Henry Dale Fellowships will be tackling issues crucial to our understanding of the molecules and cells vital to life and our fight against some of our major diseases, including cancer, heart disease and Alzheimer's disease. The scheme will provide generous resources to enable these researchers to establish their independence and become internationally competitive.
The scheme seeks to support individuals who would previously have applied for a 'biomedical' Royal Society University Research Fellowship or a Wellcome Trust Research Career Development Fellowship hosted by a UK academic organisation. Sir Henry Dale Fellowships will provide the brightest biomedical scientists with the best possible start to their research careers in the UK.
This fellowship brings together the Royal Society and the Wellcome Trust, two of the world's most prestigious and influential scientific organisations, in their shared commitment to supporting the future leaders of biomedical research.
If you are interested in making an application, please visit the Sir Henry Dale Fellowshipsscheme page.
Applications must be received by 19 March 2012.
