We fund Young Enterprise Fellowships, which are aimed specifically at recently qualified postdoctoral researchers primarily in the fields of engineering, computer science, maths and physics who wish to develop a long-term programme of biomedical research.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). More information can be found here.

In addition we fund a number of research fellowships at leading UK universities. These fellowships are aimed at high calibre early career researchers, supporting them to establish their independent career and become the research leaders of the future. We currently fund fellowships at UCL, Imperial and Newcastle. For further information and to apply for a fellowship, please contact the host university directly.
