The allocation of funding under the Medical Sciences Internal Fund (MSIF) Bridging and Family Leave schemes is currently suspended until further notice.
The Medical Sciences Divisional Office team are very sympathetic to the difficulties facing researchers and their teams as a result of the COVID-19 crisis. However it is vital that the Division and wider University has a comprehensive strategy for supporting its staff in the coming months. MSD will be supporting Departments equitably and transparently with their staff funding issues and further information will follow when University policies on furloughing, fixed term contracts, etc. are finalised and when we obtain a clear funding position from our major funders.
Applications for this scheme can be submitted at any time via IRAMS. Application outcomes are expected to be returned within six weeks of submission.
It is essential that applicants read the FAQs before applying to this fund.
