Goodger and Schorstein Scholarship for Postdoctoral Researchers in Medical Sciences
Goodger and Schorstein Scholarships are awarded to assist research in Medical Sciences. They are open to Postdoctoral Researchers from any department/institute of the Medical Sciences Division.
Applicants must have completed their DPhil (at any Higher Education Institution) at the time of application and are required to work primarily in units run by the University of Oxford within the Medical Sciences Division. Candidates may apply for funds to cover staff costs (except their own salary), consumables or project expenses. The number, length and the level of the awards is at the discretion of the Board of Management. Awarded scholarships are typically in the range £10,000 - £12,000. Scholarships may be tenable with other posts subject to the approval of the Board.
