Global Health Clinical Research Training Fellowships 2019/2020

These 1-year Global Health Clinical Research Training Fellowships support  early-career clinical professionals wishing to undertake research to improve the health of people and reduce health inequalities in developed and developing countries. Through the provision of clinical training fellowships in global health, we aim to provide opportunities for clinical academics at the very beginning of their careers to develop bids for independent PhD fellowship funding. The primary aim of the scheme is to remove obstacles to achieving peer-reviewed external grant or fellowship funding, through supporting feasibility or exploratory studies, facilitating networks and providing mentoring support from senior academics.

 Whilst funding is available to support any Global Health research within the science remit of the Wellcome Trust, we welcome fellowships addressing antimicrobial resistance, vaccine research and non-communicable diseases. We are also keen to receive applications from diverse geographical areas including east and southeast Asia, sub-Saharan Africa and Latin America.

"The fellowship covers salary costs for up to 1 year PLUS up to £12,000 for consumables."
