Early Career Fellowships are one of our Career Development Awards, aiming to attract and retain talented postdoctoral researchers who want to build a successful career in multiple sclerosis research. These grants provide a staged career structure and the opportunity for you to progress towards higher level appointments. Your application should be relevant to MS and fit with our 2018-2022 research strategy. You are also encouraged to consider our top 10 JLA research priorities and our organisational goals when developing your application. You must be the Early Career Fellowship candidate and have completed a PhD in a relevant science or health discipline. You can apply before your PhD is awarded, but the award must be made before the Fellowship starts. We’ve found that Fellowships are usually awarded to researchers after their first or second postdoc. But we’ll still consider your application if you’re earlier on in your career. Fellowships are available to everyone conducting research across the spectrum of MS research. You must be based at an UK university or NHS institution and be the Principal Investigator of the project. You need to name a supervisor on your applications. They must be actively involved in the project and are responsible for supporting you throughout. Supervisors are required to sign-off the application before you submit. Your salary is funded as part of the Fellowship. We’ll consider research budgets including running costs (consumables, animal costs, human tissue costs), equipment, and conferences. You can find the full list of eligible costs in our 2022 Grant Round applicant guidance document.
