Стипендии Wellcome Trust Training Fellowships

Wellcome Trust is offering fellowships in Public Health and Tropical Medicine to mid-career researchers from low- and middle-income countries. Wellcome Trust also offers fellowships for Masters, Intermediate and Senior Researchers.

This Training Fellowship Scheme offers research experience and training to early-stage researchers from low- and middle-income countries. The scheme aims to support research that will improve public health and tropical medicine at a local, national and global level.

A researcher can apply for a Training Fellowship in Public Health and Tropical Medicine if:

        they are a national of a low- or middle-income country.

        they have a degree in a subject relevant to public health or tropical medicine. Or you have a degree in medicine and are qualified to enter higher specialist training.

        they have some initial research experience.

The Trust expects candidate to register for a PhD if they’re awarded this fellowship. Candidate may also apply if they have a PhD and no more than three years’ postdoctoral experience.

You must also:

        have sponsorship from an eligible host organisation in a low- or middle-income country

        have a research proposal that is within the public health and tropical medicine remit.

If you’ve been away from research (eg for a career break, maternity leave, or long-term sick leave), we’ll allow for this when we consider your application. If you’ve taken formal maternity, paternity or adoption leave as the primary carer, or long-term sick leave, we’ll allow an extra six months for each period of leave when we consider your postdoctoral experience.
