The Cross Centre Postdoctoral Programme is designed to simultaneously fund exciting emerging science and to foster intra-UK DRI collaboration. We hope that it will encourage PIs to consider what their colleagues work on and how their research may complement and strengthen that of another group.
The programme will provide awards of £220,000 over three years. (Any established UK DRI/University overhead will be added). Funds should be used to support a newly hired post-doctoral investigator who will be genuinely co-supervised by two PIs from different UK DRI centres/universities.
Clinical, translational and basic research projects will be considered. Applications will be assessed, by an internal UK DRI panel, on scientific merit, novelty and the extent to which the skills and resources of the co-applicants complement and strengthen each other’s capacity and ambition.
The programme is restricted to pairs of UK DRI Group Leaders from different centres or a UK DRI Group Leader and a recognised UK DRI Associated Member based at a different university.
