Invitation to tender - scoping exercise for new scheme

The Academy of Medical Sciences is inviting tenders to conduct a scoping exercise for a new scheme of starter grants to support early career researchers in the medical humanities and medically-related social sciences.

One of the Academy’s strategic goals is to develop the next generation of leading medical researchers.  We do this through our grants schemes for early career researchers, and also through mentoring, skills development, networking and policy work.

In May 2015, we secured agreement with the Wellcome Trust to initiate a new scheme of starter grants to support early career (non-clinical) Biomedical Scientists.

As part of the agreement with the Wellcome Trust, we have been asked to devise a similar scheme for Lecturers in the Medical Humanities and Medically-Related Social Sciences. These awards would target researchers at a similar career stage, i.e. within their first 2-3 years of appointment to a lectureship post (or equivalent), with the aim of helping them to transition to independence.

The overall aim of the scoping exercise is to generate an evidence base to support the development and implementation of a new scheme of starter grants for lecturers in the medical humanities and social sciences.

You can download the Invitation for Tender on the right side of this page. If you wish to discuss this, please get in touch with Dr Rachel Macdonald, Head of Grants and Programmes at [email protected] or 020 3176 2185.

To apply, please email your tender to Dr Rachel Macdonald at [email protected] by Friday 3 July 2015, 4pm.
