Who can apply

You can apply for an Intermediate Fellowship in Public Health and Tropical Medicine if you’re a researcher based in a low- or middle-income country. You should be driving your own research and be ready to lead an independent research programme.

You can apply if:

  • you’re a national of a low- or middle-income country
  • you have a PhD or a degree in medicine and are qualified to enter higher specialist training
  • you have significant research experience
  • you have made important contributions to your area of research eg publications, patents, software development or an impact on health policy or practice.

If you don’t have a PhD or degree in medicine, we may still consider you if you have a first or Master’s degree and can show substantial research experience.

This scheme may be of particular interest if you're an early-career fellow (such as a Training Fellow in Public Health and Tropical Medicine) and this fellowship is the next step in your career as a research scientist.

You must have an eligible sponsoring organisation in a low- or middle-income country that will administer the fellowship for the full duration of the award.

If you've been away from research (eg for a career break, maternity leave, or long-term sick leave), we'll allow for this when we consider your application.

What we're looking for
Your research proposal should focus on one of the areas within our public health and tropical medicine remit. Research can include laboratory-based molecular analysis of field or clinical samples, but we don't usually consider projects focused solely on studies in vitro or using animal models.
We will review:
  • your research contributions
  • the scientific merit of your proposed project
  • the significance of the research
  • the feasibility of your proposal
  • the suitability of your sponsor and host environment for both your research and for the development of your independent career.
By the end of this fellowship you should:
  • have achieved international standing in your area of research
  • be leading your own research programme
  • have the skills and experience to apply for senior level fellowships or permanent positions at a research organisation.
