Enterprise Fellowships 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 within a UK university or research institution. Successful projects will be truly innovative and not merely an extension of your current research. We expect you to apply your skills to address an important unmet clinical problem, to develop your scientific independence and establish new collaborations across disciplines in the field. We’re 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 be an early-career researcher with a PhD in a relevant discipline and a maximum of 3 years post-doctoral experience (excluding career breaks).

For more information please e-mail Richard Miller.
