Sir Henry Dale Fellowship - Royal Society
This scheme is for outstanding post-doctoral scientists wishing to build their own UK-based, independent research career addressing an important biomedical question. Grant-holders are entitled to take the full period of maternity, paternity, adoptive or extended sick leave as provided by their employing institution.
This award is open to both sexes, however the recipient of the award is expected to spend a proportion of the grant on implementing a project to raise the profile of women in STEM in their host institution and/or field of expertise in the UK.
SUSTAIN is a programme for women researchers to thrive in their independent research careers. It provides an innovative programme of training and support to develop participants’ leadership and career potential.
