Internal Funding Call: Isaac Newton Trust / Wellcome Trust ISSF / University of Cambridge Joint Research Grants Scheme
Isaac Newton Trust / Wellcome Trust ISSF / University of Cambridge Joint Research Grants Scheme
The Isaac Newton Trust, the School of the Biological Sciences and the School of Clinical Medicine have created a joint research grants scheme aimed at recently appointed lecturers in the two biomedical Schools. The objective of the scheme is to provide small research grants to the new lecturers to develop projects leading to a full application for external funding. The funding will come from three sources: The Isaac Newton Trust, the Wellcome Trust ISSF fund and the departments of those applicants receiving the award. Applications for funding outside the Wellcome Trust ISSF remit will be accepted.
Eligibility: The scheme is open to the University Lecturers in the School of Biological Sciences and the School of Clinical Medicine, or persons appointed to the equivalent posts (approved by their Head of the School). The applicants should have been appointed between 1st October 2011 and 31st January 2014.
Budget available: Research grants of up to £80,000 are available under this scheme, for a period of up to 2 years. Eligible expenditure: directly incurred and allocated costs only. The grants can be used to fund PDRA support (up to the salary point 45), equipment and ancillary consumables. PI Time, student fees and travel are not eligible costs on these grants. Please note that your department is expected to provide 1/3 of the project cost.
The application should include:
Resubmissions from candidates unsuccessful in previous round are allowed but the application needs to be materially different from the previous one and an explanation provided as to how it was different should be included in a covering letter.
Application deadline: 29th November 2013. Please send your application and supporting documents to firstname.lastname@example.org and copy your departmental administrator.
Project start date: During 2014
Review panel: Senior members of the School of the Biological Sciences and the Clinical School. The proposals will be judged based on a) quality of research b) prospect of it leading to a full application for external support. The outcome of the review will be announced in early January 2014.
Please send any queries about the scheme to: email@example.com
Please note the unsuccessful applicants to this scheme cannot apply to the Isaac Newton Trust for support for the materially same project. The successful applicants cannot apply to the Isaac Newton Trust for matching funding based on these grants.
