Applications are invited for the next round of University of Cambridge/ Wellcome Trust Junior Interdisciplinary Fellowships.
The scheme is aimed at 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.

It is anticipated that each award holder will work with two Principal Investigators at the University of Cambridge, one in the physical sciences and the other in the life sciences, who will each provide appropriate guidance and support.

Junior Interdisciplinary Fellowships will be awarded for periods of up to two years. The salary will be in the range of £32,816-£40,322, depending upon experience. This Scheme is funded jointly between the Wellcome Trust and the University of Cambridge. Please be aware that the cost of the Fellowship (including on-costs and any research consumables requested) will be funded as follows:

50% by the University of Cambridge Wellcome Trust award and 50% by Departments involved in the project. It is the applicant's responsibility to pre-agree this 50% contribution with their future department or supervisor.

Application deadline: Please send your application and supporting documents by email Paulina Pieprzyca by midnight 2nd February 2020.
