Call for applications: Wellcome Trust Early-Career Awards

Other Funding

The Wellcome Trust have launched three new discovery research funding schemes in line with their new strategy. The Wellcome Early-Career Awards scheme is soliciting applications from early-career researchers from any discipline who are ready to develop their research identity. Through innovative projects, they will deliver shifts in understanding that could improve human life, health, and wellbeing. By the end of the award, successful candidates will be equipped to lead their own independent research programme.
Research proposals may be in any discipline - including science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM), experimental medicine, humanities and social science, clinical/allied health sciences, and public health - as long as it has the potential to improve human life, health and wellbeing, and aligns with the Wellcome Trust’s funding remit.
The call is open to early-career researchers who:

- Hold a PhD or have completed four years’ equivalent research experience; and

- Are ready to design, plan, and deliver their own innovative project.

Grants are available for up to five years and applicants may request salary and up to £400,000 for research expenses.
