The Wellcome Trust’s India Alliance and the Indian Department of Biotechnology invites preliminary applications for their intermediate fellowships. These enable scientists to undertake research and establish themselves as independent researchers in an academic institution in India.
The proposed research should fall within the India Alliance’s remit which is to support biomedical research that is relevant to human and animal welfare.
Funding & Duration
