This prestigious fellowship invites applications from outstanding early career scientists and clinicians aiming to conduct research at Oxford University in the field of Cellular Health. The award includes 3 year’s salary as well as generous consumables and travel budget. It also includes a £10,000 prize to be used towards the fellow’s professional development.
Projects will be university-led and fellows will be expected to publish in high quality scientific journals and to present their work at national and international scientific conferences.
In order to apply, prospective applicants will need to identify a research group at the University of Oxford that will support their application, co-develop their research proposal and host them for the duration of the fellowship. The programme will be open to candidates around the world working in all areas relevant to cellular health with a particular emphasis on the following areas:
Biomarkers of aging, with emphasis on epigenetics, cellular senescence, neurodegeneration, the microbiome, circadian rhythms and autophagy. Data–driven approaches to monitoring ageing–related changes and interventions
Ambitious, innovative and interdisciplinary projects are strongly encouraged. In particular, projects that have a strong translational emphasis or potential are encouraged.
This scheme also offers fellows a number of additional opportunities. Firstly, the fellows will be assigned a mentor from Elysium Health's Scientific Advisory Board. During their fellowship they will also have the opportunity to travel to New York were they will receive training in aspects of commercial healthcare (e.g. marketing, product design, financing, production and sales).
