New scheme for biomedical scientists - Springboard

23 September 2015

The Academy of Medical Sciences has announced the inaugural call for applications to its new scheme for biomedical researchers.

Springboard offers a bespoke package of support to biomedical researchers at the start of their first independent post to help launch their research careers.

This includes funding of up to £100,000 over two years and access to the Academy’s mentoring and career development programme.

One round of funding will be held each year, with an application deadline every December. Applicants must be based within one of the eligible higher education institutions and should contact the Springboard Champion within their institution in the first instance.

The current round is now open for applications.

Full details about the scheme and details of Springboard Champions can be found at www.acmedsci.ac.uk/springboard or email springboard@acmedsci.ac.uk
