Reminder: Foundation fellowships deadline 15 April 2015

Published on 18 March 2015

Applications are open for our foundation fellowships with a deadline of 5pm, Wednesday 15 April 2015. 

Foundation fellowships are our first postdoctoral awards for basic scientists and non-medical PhD students (including nurse & allied health professionals and veterinary surgeons).

These awards aim to retain the best postdoctoral researchers in areas of research relevant to musculoskeletal disease and provide an opportunity for fellows to develop independent research ideas at an early stage in their career.

At the time of application candidates should be in the final year of PhD training, or within one year of completing their PhD. Foundation fellowships should be associated with an established sponsor, who must not be the applicant’s previous PhD supervisor.  In addition Arthritis Research UK will give preference to candidates wishing to move laboratories.

Applications should be made through Grant Tracker and the project must demonstrate clear relevance to the aims of Arthritis Research UK.

For more guidance view our information on how to apply or contact the research department on  or 0300 7900 403.
