Wellcome Sanger Institute are committed to enabling and opening routes back into science for those who have had a break from scientific research – for any reason.
They understand that even a short time out of research can have an impact on your career, which is why they have created a postdoctoral fellowship providing an additional opportunity specifically for those who have been out of scientific research for 12 months or more to return to high-quality postdoctoral training. One Fellowship will be awarded each year. Each Fellowship will last for three years and can be worked full time, part time or flexibly.
The Janet Thornton Fellowship is open to scientists who:
- Have had a break from scientific research of 12 continuous months or more, for any reason
- Are not currently working in scientific research
- Have at least one years’ postdoctoral experience
You will be able to start within 6 months of being offered the role.
