The fund is open to all researchers who are employees of departments in the Medical Sciences Division. Priority will be given to early career clinical academics (Clinical Lecturers) who are establishing their independent career. Early career clinical researchers should make their status clear in their application.
Postdoctoral Researchers and Clinical Research Fellows who are not yet independent may apply, but should make a clear case for how an MSIF PP award will help establish their independent career.
Clinical Research Fellows who have completed a doctorate may apply. Honorary and visiting members of departments are not eligible for this funding.
Non-staff research costs, including equipment, are eligible for funding. Proposals that can demonstrate matching funding from other sources will be received favourably.
