Scheme OPEN

The Academy of Medical Sciences is delighted to announce the call for applications to its Professorship Scheme. Working in partnership with UK Higher Education Institutions, we will be providing an attractive package of support to biomedical and healthcare researchers taking up their first full Professorship.

The Academy of Medical Sciences is committed to attracting and retaining emerging talent from across the globe to the UK, and recognises the importance of capacity building at the early-leadership career stage.

This scheme seeks to progress that ambition by offering flexible support to researchers imminently taking up their first full Professorship, or for those that have recently commenced such a position.  Awards will be made in partnership with the employing Higher Education Institute (HEI).
