Kidney Research UK – Career Development Grant Deadline Extended

Get support and funding to tackle the big renal questions with our career development grants

The academic year is in full swing, and many are scrambling to start work in the lab, planning experiments, poring over the literature and looking at where their research could go next. Others are still waiting to start because they missed that first round of funding.

But don’t fret – we have several career development grants still open.

We potentially have a larger budget available for this grants round, collaborating with new partners to fund research into a few specific areas of kidney disease, so as a result, we have extended the deadline for fellowship and PhD studentship applications to 5pm on Monday 2 December 2019.

This includes our Allied Health Professional (AHP) fellowship which gives nurses and allied health professionals the opportunity to carry out kidney research and obtain a higher degree (Masters, DPhil or PhD). This year we also have joint funding from The Stoneygate Trust for a specific fellowship grant of up to £200,000 if your research is looking at health inequalities, mental health impact on kidney patients, intervention into dialysis and improving quality of life for kidney patients. For all of the AHP fellowships, there’s funding for three years on a full-time basis, or up to five years on a pro-rata part-time basis.

Further information on this and all our career development grants is available here or contact the Research Operations team on:

Applications for our Project and Innovation grants as well as our Intercalated Degree awards will be opening in December.
