call for applications

The 2021 call for applications is now closed. We advertise fellowship positions each spring, with an expected start date in autumn of the same year. We recruit between three and six fellows in each recruitment cycle. 


Eligibility and selection criteria

The fellowship programme is international and therefore applicants from any country are eligible to apply. We aim to recruit fellows with the potential to become leaders in the field of diabetes, cardiometabolism, liver and renal disease in subsequent years.

The key selection criteria for the Postdoctoral Research Fellowships are:

  • A PhD (completed or close to completion) in a biomedical subject, or other relevant subject, together with skills and experience relevant to biomedical research.
  • Will typically be no more than four years post PhD at the start of the fellowship (Autumn 2021). This condition will be relaxed proportionately for applicants who have had a career break. Please contact us if you would like to discuss your eligibility.
  • A strong CV, having published in high impact journals and presented at international meetings.
  • An enthusiastic interest in the research topic.
