University of Cambridge / Wellcome Trust Junior Interdisciplinary Fellowships

University of Cambridge - Academic Division

University of Cambridge / Wellcome Trust Junior Interdisciplinary Fellowships x 2

Fixed-term: The funds for this post are available for 2 years in the first instance.

Applications are invited for the University of Cambridge/ Wellcome Trust Junior Interdisciplinary Fellowships

The scheme is aimed at suitably qualified post-doctoral candidates with backgrounds in the physical sciences (incl. engineering, mathematics and computer sciences) who wish to gain experience in the application of their research to solve problems in the basic biological and biomedical sciences.

Research projects must fall within the broad remit of the Wellcome Trust and the research must be undertaken in laboratories within the School of Biological Sciences or Clinical Medicine. In exceptional circumstances candidates with a background in the life sciences wishing to gain experience working in the physical sciences may also be considered, but additional restrictions apply.

The Fellowships are intended to provide opportunities for award holders to gain experience in applying biological approaches, and/or apply novel theoretical or experimental techniques from the physical sciences to address biological problems. In addition, it is hoped that this scheme will foster longer-term collaborations between Principal Investigators from the physical and life sciences disciplines within the University of Cambridge.

Junior Interdisciplinary Fellowships will be awarded for periods of up to two years. Please note, to apply for this scheme, candidates will need to identify Principal Investigators to work with, complete an application form with a brief project outline and provide supporting statements and references.

Full details on how to apply can be found on the website
