● You can apply for this award if you want to tackle an important and original health-related question that requires the combined knowledge and expertise of a team of researchers.
● Your proposed approach must have the potential to make a significant, measurable difference to health research in the humanities and social sciences.
● The number of researchers in your team can range from two to six and should be appropriate to your proposed research.
Everyone in the team should have:
● A good track record in their field relative to their career stage
● A PhD or equivalent.
● Team members can come from the same or different disciplines. They can work in the same organisation (including the same department) or in different organisations around the world.
● As lead applicant, you must have a permanent, open-ended or long-term rolling contract, or the guarantee of one. Your salary must be paid by your host organisation in the UK, Republic of Ireland or a low-or middle-income country.
● The other applicants in the team don’t need permanent contracts. Those without permanent contracts can ask for salaries.
If you, or any other applicants, hold a permanent, open-ended or long-term rolling contract, you can ask for either:
● Research/teaching replacement costs.
● Salary costs, if you have to get your salary from external grant funding. If this applies to you, or any other applicants on your grant, you must commit at least 10% of your working hours to this award. In this case, your host organisation must confirm details about your employment contract(s) or their policy on salary recovery costs.
They will review:
● The importance and originality of your research question(s) to your field(s)
● The necessity of this collaboration to answer these research questions
● The feasibility of your proposal
● The track records of all team members, relative to their career stage
● Evidence that the team has the relevant expertise for the proposed research and will work together well, eg you’ve collaborated with each other before, or been involved in similar teams
