WELLCOME TRUST: Principal Research Fellowships



This is the most prestigious of the Wellcome Trust's personal awards and provides long-term support for researchers of international standing. Successful candidates will have an established track record in research at the highest level. Awards are for seven years in the first instance, and provide both a personal salary and research programme funding in full. After the first period of award, the fellowship will be subject to a competitive scientific review, which will subsequently occur on a rolling basis every five years. If you intend to apply you should contact the Wellcome Trust with a full CV, preferably 18 months in advance of the desired award date. Applications are accepted on a rolling basis.
