Funding call

This scheme provides funding for mid-career researchers from any discipline who have the potential to be international research leaders. They will develop their research capabilities, drive innovative programmes of work and deliver significant shifts in understanding that could improve human life, health and wellbeing.

Where your host organisation is based: UK, Republic of Ireland, Low- or middle-income countries (apart from India and mainland China)

Level of funding:

A Wellcome Career Development Award provides a salary for the grantholder (if required) and research expenses. You should ask for your salary (if required) and the resources you need for your research programme. You will need to justify this in your application.

The award usually lasts for 8 years, but may be less for some disciplines, such as humanities and social science.

The award may be held on a part-time basis. We will extend the duration of the award to reflect this.
