The Immediate Postdoctoral Basic Science Research Fellowships from the British Heart Foundation provide postdoctoral funding for newly qualified postdoctoral researchers to develop their independent research careers at an established UK cardiovascular research center. The Fellowship must not be carried out at the same institution as where the applicant received their PhD training. Candidates should be in the final year of their PhD studies or have no more than two years of postdoctoral research experience from the date of the PhD viva. Successful applicants who do not have working rights in the UK are eligible for the UK Global Talent Visa. The Fellowship provides 4 years of salary funding and additional benefits, including travel funds to support research training stays abroad and a family allowance. Applicants are encouraged to spend up to 1.5 years of the award overseas or in a second UK institution.
Applications are assessed on a rolling basis and applicants are encouraged to apply at any time.
