The Wellcome Early Career Awards from the Wellcome Trust enable researchers working on human life, health and wellbeing from the perspective of any discipline, to develop their own research identity and at the end of the Award to lead their own research group. 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 a PhD or have 4 years of equivalent research experience, and up to 3 years of postdoctoral experience. The Award provides funding for up to 5 years, which includes the applicant´s salary and up to 400,000 GBP for research expenses and may include institutional indirect costs/overheads.
The next applications close on May 18, 2023.
