Wellcome Trust Senior research fellowships

The Wellcome Trust invites applications for its senior research fellowships. These support independent scientific researchers who want to tackle the most important questions in science and who are leaders in their field. Proposals must fall within the trust’s science remit and proposals from low- or middle-income country applicants who wish to work in a LMIC must also focus on a health priority in that country.

Researchers from the UK, Republic of Ireland and low- or middle-income countries may apply. They should have a PhD and significant postdoctoral research experience, be leading their own independent research programme and have an internationally recognised track record in their area of research. Applicants need an eligible sponsoring host institution in the UK, Republic of Ireland or in a low- or middle-income country with the support of the relevant head of department or equivalent.

Fellowships are tenable for seven years and cover basic salary, a fellowship supplement of £12,500, personal removal expenses and research expenses, including support staff.
