|-||Call for applications: African Research Leaders 2023||
Lack of grant funding and research infrastructure in many sub-Saharan Africa (SSA) countries can make it difficult to attract and retain talented African scientists. As a result, African nationals are currently under-represented as leaders in medical research in the region. The African Research Leaders scheme aims to attract and retain exceptionally talented ‘rising star’ individuals who will lead high quality research on key global health issues pertinent to SSA.
|-||Call for applications: Wellcome Career Development Awards||
The Wellcome Trust have launched three new discovery research funding schemes in line with their new strategy. The Wellcome Career Development Awards scheme is soliciting applications from mid-career researchers from any discipline who have the potential to be international research leaders. They will develop their research capabilities, drive innovative programmes of work, and deliver significant shifts in understanding that could improve human life, health, and wellbeing.
