Applying for a jointly funded clinician scientist fellowship
MRC collaborates with royal colleges and charity funders to offer jointly funded clinician scientist fellowships.
These awards offer the prestige of having the relevant organisation co-fund your fellowship and may offer additional opportunities to report on your project, present your work at meetings and take part in professional networking.
To apply for joint funding, you must include the joint funding form as part of your cover letter. Download the joint funding form (DOCX, 63KB).
Joint-funding does not alter the assessment process. We will offer all jointly funded fellowships under standard MRC terms and conditions, except where the co-funder has specified extra terms and conditions. If you apply for a jointly funded award which is not available for any reason, we will automatically consider you for a standard MRC fellowship instead.
We are inviting applications for the following four jointly funded clinician scientist fellowship schemes.
MRC-Motor Neurone Disease Association Lady Edith Wolfson Fellowships
These awards support clinicians who want to pursue research into the pathogenesis and treatment of motor neurone disease. The Motor Neurone Disease Association and MRC will co-fund successful applicants.
If you have any queries about this fellowship or your proposed research area, contact Dr Brian Dickie, Director of Research Development: email@example.com
MRC-Versus Arthritis Fellowship
Versus Arthritis (VA) invests in breakthrough treatments, providing information and support for the 10 million people with arthritis in the UK. The organisation’s remit covers all conditions which affect the joints, bones, tendons, ligaments and muscles, including:
- rheumatoid arthritis
- back pain
This supports basic discovery research through to clinical and applied health research.
We welcome applications from clinicians whose research will make a positive and tangible change for people with musculoskeletal conditions. As a Versus Arthritis jointly-funded fellow, you will be invited to attend VA’s annual fellows day and have access to workshops for public and patient involvement and the communication of research to a wider audience.
You can find out more about this funding opportunity by emailing Versus Arthritis: firstname.lastname@example.org
