Kidney Research UK Funding Opportunities

Leave a comment

Kidney Research UK invites applications for several funding opportunities:

Training fellowships – clinical

These enable medical graduates to specialise in the renal field thereby expanding the levels of expertise in kidney research and treatment.

Senior fellowships – non-clinical

These support non-clinical scientists who have conducted independent research in the renal field and wish to build on their history and reputation in this field, deepening their knowledge and experience.

Innovation grants

These fund stand-alone research that will advance knowledge of kidney disease, particularly new hypotheses where initial pilot or supporting data is required prior to a full research project.

PhD studentships

The studentships are awarded to UK higher education institutes for research studentships leading to PhD and held within a RENAL research group.

The closing date for applications is 27 Nov 2015, except the Innovation Grant which closes 4 March 2016.
