The Lister Institute of Preventive Medicine is offering research prize fellowships for both scientifically and clinically trained applicants. The research undertaken may be in any area of bio medical research in its broadest context. The Lister Prize Fellowship funding must not be used to provide or augment the applicant's salary. Therefore, regardless of nationality the applicant must be employed by a UK or Republic of Ireland not-for-profit organization and have guaranteed funding for the first three years of the Lister award. The application deadline is 12 December 2014.

Study Subject(s): The research undertaken may be in any area of bio medical research in its broadest context.

Eligibility: The Lister Institute seeks diversity amongst its Prize –winners – there is no stereotype for the ideal candidate but there are some eligibility criteria:

  • Research training–the Lister Prize Fellowships are open to both scientifically and clinically trained applicants.
  • Research Area– the research undertaken may be in any area of bio medical research in its broadest context.
  • Research experience – every applicant should have a minimum of three and less than ten years' post-doctoral experience by 1 October 2015. Postdoctoral experience will be taken from the date that a PhD or MD is awarded or the earlier if the candidate holds both degrees. Allowance will be made for ‘time-out' from research such as for maternity leave or full-time clinical training, in addition the Institute will consider other personal circumstances that may have limited research time or might in the future. Details may be provided on the form or advice sought from the Institute's Administrator before application.
  • Location– the Lister Institute will fund research in the UK and the Republic of Ireland provided that it is undertaken in a not-for-profit organization such as (but not exclusively) a University, Research Council Unit or Charity-funded Institute.
  • Employment–the Lister Prize Fellowship funding must not be used to provide or augment the applicant's salary. Therefore, regardless of nationality the applicant must be employed by a UK or Republic of Ireland not-for-profit organization and have guaranteed funding for the first three years of the Lister award. Since the Lister Prize Fellowship does not provide a personal salary the holders of Fellowships from other organizations are, of course, eligible to apply.

Scholarship Open for International Students:

Lister Institute Research Prize Fellowships

Lister Institute Research Prize Fellowships

Candidates of any nationality employed by a UK or Republic of Ireland not-for-profit organization can apply for these prize fellowships.

Scholarship Description: The Lister Institute Research Prize Fellowships are one-off awards which seek to help support and nurture future leaders of biomedical research by providing £200,000 (or equivalent euros) which may be used in any appropriate way to support the holder's research, other than the provision or augmentation of personal salary, over a period of up to five years. The awards are aimed at younger, rather than established, researchers who might be in their early years of running their own groups and for whom receipt of the Prize would ‘make a real difference'.

Number of award(s): There are up to three competitive awards per year (occasionally four as in 2013) which are made after a written application process which culminates in an interview with members of the Institute's Scientific Advisory Committee.

Duration of award(s): It is a one off award which may be used over a period of five years.

What does it cover? The value of award is £200,000 (or equivalent euros) which may be used in any appropriate way to support the holder's research, other than the provision or augmentation of personal salary, over a period of up to five years.

Selection Criteria: The Prize Fellowships are intended to provide funding which will enhance or expand an on-going research activity or enable a new area to be developed and, as said above, would have a high impact for the recipient – they are not project grants! The perceived beneficial ‘impact' of the Prize on the recipient and their career will be a key factor in the selection process.

Notification: Candidates should be aware that interviews for the short-listed candidates will take place in London on Wednesday 20 May 2015.

How to Apply: The signed original form and twelve complete and collated copies should be sent via Royal Mail and returned by 12 December 2014. In addition we require one copy of the Application form Parts 1-4 only, research proposal (plus summary) and short CV – to be e-mailed to the Institute in PDF format.
