Sir Henry Dale Fellowships by The Royal Society & Wellcome Trust, UK: Apply by May 12: Expired


Applications are now invited from dedicated Post-Doctoral Researchers for the Sir Henry Dale Fellowships by The Royal Society & Wellcome Trust, UK.

This scheme provides support for postdoctoral researchers who aim to become independent scientists leading their own groups. The scheme is a partnership between the Royal Society and the Wellcome Trust.

  1. You can apply for a Sir Henry Dale Fellowship if you’re already driving your own research and you’re ready to lead an independent research program.
  2. You must have a Ph.D. and significant postdoctoral research experience.
  3. You should have made important contributions to your area of research, eg publications, patents, software development, or an impact on policy.
  4. You must have sponsorship from a head of department or equivalent at an eligible host organization in the UK. Applicants who want to be based in the Republic of Ireland should apply for a Research Career Development Fellowship instead.
  5. If you’re proposing to stay in your current department, you should describe in your application how this proposal will further your independent scientific career.

A Sir Henry Dale Fellowship is for five years. It may be held on a part-time basis and you can apply for renewal for an additional three years. The award includes:
