Global Health Clinical Research Training Fellowships 2020/2021

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 remit found on the Wellcome Trust science remit website, we welcome fellowships addressing multimorbidity, infectious disease and mental health.We are also keen to receive applications from diverse geographical areas including east and southeast Asia, sub-Saharan Africa and Latin America.

Imperial College is currently waiting to hear from Wellcome about a new scheme.
