BBSRC is offering outstanding early career researchers a funding boost through its annual fellowships.

Launched in 1996, BBSRC David Phillips Fellowships support outstanding researchers in the early stage of their careers. In addition to these, BBSRC also offers early career fellowships in partnership with the Food Standards Agency (FSA).

Both fellowships provide funding for scientists who have demonstrated high potential and who wish to establish themselves as independent researchers.

Awards are for 5 years and include personal salary and a significant research support grant.

In addition to the funding, the fellows are assigned an independent mentor who can provide professional advice and guidance.

To apply before 23 October see:
