Faculty Fellowships are a new Wellcome Trust Institutional Strategic Support Fund opportunity, providing flexible funding for up to 18 months for early career researchers who have not yet submitted a Fellowship application but for who an award is in the pipeline because of the quality of the applicant, supervisor and project.
These fellowships are open to researchers across all Faculties. Postdoctoral researchers from disciplines outside of biomedicine can apply for funding to apply their expertise to the goals of understanding health and disease, provided the proposed area of research is within the remit of the Wellcome Trust.
The closing date for applications is 12.00 on 19 June 2017. Please note that within the Faculty of Medicine, the Departmental deadline is 1 June. Further details regarding these Fellowships can be found on the ISSF webpage.
