Wellcome Career Development Awards (all disciplines – UK, Ireland & developing countries)


The Wellcome Career Development Awards from the Wellcome Trust enable researchers working on human life, health and wellbeing from the perspective of any discipline, to lead their own research program. There are no citizenship restrictions but researchers must have sponsorship from eligible research institutions in the UK, Ireland or low-or-middle income countries (except for China and India). Applicants must have completed at least one or two periods of research training after their initial training. Applicants may be in the first three years of their first independent research appointment. The Award provides salary and research expenses for 8 years (does not include indirect costs).

The next applications close on July 27, 2023.
