The Wellcome Trust invites applications for its investigator awards in humanities and social sciences. These support researchers in established posts at all career stages working on important questions of relevance to health.
Applicants must be based in the UK, Republic of Ireland or a low or middle-income country, and should have an established academic post at an eligible higher education or research institution. Applicants who have an established academic post guaranteed by the time they take up the award are also eligible to apply. Candidates should have a statement of commitment from a senior member of the institution and a relevant research project. Two researchers working together may apply jointly.
Awards range from £300,000 to £1 million each over a maximum period of five years. They may be used to cover research expenses, materials and consumables, equipment, and travel and subsistence costs.
