New award launched today – Rosetrees Trust 2019 Young Enterprise Fellowships
Awards up to £180,000 over three years for Biomedical Research
Young Enterprise Fellowships are aimed specifically at recently qualified postdoctoral researchers primarily in the fields of engineering, physical sciences, maths and computer science, who wish to develop a long-term programme of biomedical research. The scheme is designed for researchers to develop a new and truly innovative idea rather than extend their current research. Researchers will be expected to apply their skills to address an important unmet clinical problem, to develop their scientific independence and establish new collaborations across disciplines in the field. They are looking for dynamic and motivated scientists who have the vision to address an important clinical problem with a novel and potentially transformative approach.
Applicants must either be in the final year of their PhD studies or be an early-career researcher with a maximum of 3 years post-doctoral experience (excluding career breaks). The fellowship offers up to £60,000 per annum for three years available for salary and consumables costs.
