Discovery Fellowship

Apply for a fellowship to support your first steps into independent research and gain leadership skills.

You must have completed a successful PhD viva by 30 November 2021.

You must show you:

  • have potential to become a future research leader
  • wish to conduct your own independent research within a host lab
  • wish to gain leadership skills.

Your project must be within the remit of BBSRC. We encourage projects that fit BBSRC’s strategic priorities.

Your project’s full economic cost (100% fEC) can be up to £500,000. We will fund 80% of this (£400,000). Your host research organisation must agree to fund the rest.

Discovery Fellowships are three years long. There are up to 15 fellowships available.

This is the only Discovery Fellowship opportunity open in 2021.
