This application is for funding to assist non-clinical researchers in Life Sciences
who are taking family leave, with a technician or other support, to help maintain the progress of their academic work whilst they are on family leave. This scheme is specific to non-clinical researchers – clinical researchers should refer to the existing Family leave support for Clinical Lecturers
Funding is provided by the Wellcome ISSF. Decisions will be made by the Chair of the ISSF panel. Wellcome funds are due to be fully spent by September 2022. Within this timeframe, there is no specific deadline for applications, but it is advised that applications are submitted as early as possible to enable timely recruitment of a suitable technician. It is possible for the technician to start before the family leave commences and/or continue after the researcher returns to work, funding permitting.
Please refer to the guidance notes available on the Internal Research Funding
