- The Foulkes Foundation invites applications for Fellowships from recently qualified scientists and medical graduates.
- Applicants should have a PhD or equivalent degree and should intend to contribute to medical research.
The Fellowships are awarded for up to three years and are tenable in the United Kingdom only. The size of the Fellowship depends on the circumstances of the applicant and is intended to cover personal maintenance only, not fees, salaries or research grants. Applicants should be aware that the main criterion for selection is academic excellence.
It would be helpful if applicants with science degrees wishing to study medicine were to indicate in what way they would regard possession of a medical qualification to be likely to assist them to make use of their scientific qualifications in their subsequent career. Similarly, medically qualified applicants wishing to take a post-doctoral degree in science should indicate why they wish to obtain additional experience and qualifications, and how they expect that this will assist them in their future research career.
The Trustees will be particularly interested in receiving applications from candidates whose previous research training will equip them for the exciting programmes of medical research they eventually hope to pursue. This will include individuals trained in the biomedical sciences, as well as those from physical, engineering and computer science backgrounds, which are becoming increasingly important in driving the medical advances of the future.
Applicants will be selected by an Advisory Board whose decision is subject to final approval by the Trustees of the Foulkes Foundation.
