Eligibility

Applicants must:

  • be resident in the UK at the time of application;
  • hold or have held a teaching and/or research post at a university or comparable institution in the UK at the point of retirement;
  • have retired by the time of taking up the Fellowship and no longer have a normal contract of employment. Applicants may hold a part-time position of up to 0.5 FTE.

Applications will be considered in all subject areas with the following exceptions: both because of the substantial funding available from other sources for applied medical research, and the Trust’s priority to support investigations of a fundamental nature, we do not fund studies of disease, illness and disabilities in humans and animals, or research that is intended to inform clinical practice or the development of medical applications.
