Eligibility:
● You can apply for a Senior Research Fellowship if you’re already leading your own independent research programme. The programme of work you propose must be innovative and ambitious.
● You should have a higher degree (PhD or equivalent) and significant research experience.

You should be able to show:
● Your work is important, original and has impact
● You have made important contributions to your area of research, eg publications, patents, software development or an impact on health policy or practice
● You are developing an international reputation as a research leader in your field
● You’re committed to developing and mentoring less experienced researchers.
● You must have sponsorship from a head of department or equivalent at an eligible host organization. Your host organization must be located in one of the following:

● UK
● Republic of Ireland
● A low- or middle-income country (only nationals of low- or middle-income countries have this third option).

● If you hold, or have held, a senior fellowship supported by another funding body, you can apply for a Senior Research Fellowship of up to 5 years (not 7 years). You will need a 50% salary contribution from your host organization. After this, you can’t apply for a renewal. Please contact the relevant Science team to discuss this and to find out how to apply.
● If you’ve been away from research (eg for a career break, maternity leave, shared parental leave or long-term sick leave), we’ll allow for this when we consider your application.
● You are not usually eligible if you have a permanent or rolling employment contract in the UK or Republic of Ireland, although they’re willing to consider an application if you have a strong justification for moving to a different organization. If you are a national of a low- or middle-income country proposing to work in a low- or middle- income country, and you have a permanent or rolling contract, you may still be eligible to apply.

In addition, you can’t usually apply if:
● You are currently applying for another Wellcome award
● You have already held the equivalent of two senior research fellowships from another funder you are a researcher in India – instead go to the Wellcome Trust/Department of Biotechnology India Alliance website (opens in a new tab).

● Senior Research Fellowships in Basic Biomedical Science
