The University of Cambridge is delighted to invite applications for the Next Generation Research Fellowships (NGF). Students from all nations are welcome to apply. He or she must be undertaking PhD research falling within the remit of the Centre, with special reference to the trophoblast. A yearly funding of £60,000 will be given to the fellows for three years. No application will be accepted after 2 December 2016.
Next Generation Fellowships are aimed at promoting the prospects of high calibre individuals pursuing innovative research falling within the remit of the Centre, with special reference to the trophoblast. Applications addressing the Grand Challenges identified by the Centre will be particularly welcomed. The Fellowships are highly flexible to suit individual needs, and enable the holder to develop as an independent researcher within a supportive and stimulating environment. Holders are expected to apply for a Research Fellowship/Career Development Award from a research council or other funding body, or a faculty position during the course of their tenure.
The Fellowship will provide flexible funding of up to £60,000 per annum, although the Managers will take into account other sources of research funding available to the Fellow when making the award. The funding will provide for their personal salary on the Research Associate scale (£28,982 to £37,768), research consumables, equipment and conference travel. Successful candidates will be free, and indeed, to apply for additional funding to cover consumable costs and additional research expenses.
