The Medical Research Foundation is inviting applications for collaborative research grants, from mid-career researchers working on the impact of climate change on health.
Projects should aim to develop a new collaboration or solidify an existing partnership between two researchers, expanding their research networks and building their research profiles to develop emerging research leaders in both countries.
Research supported through these grants should aim to increase understanding of the mechanisms underpinning, and processes involved, in the impact of climate change on infectious diseases and other non-infectious health outcomes that disproportionately affect tropical regions.
- Applications should represent a collaborative project between a mid-career researcher who is a national of and based in a sub-Saharan African country, from an organization with an established legal entity in sub-Saharan Africa, and a mid-career UK-based researcher at an eligible institution. Nationality and country of residence/employment may be different.
- UK-based applicants must hold a Ph.D., DPhil, or MD, are expected to have postdoctoral experience, and be in the process of, or be ready for, transition to research independence.
- Sub-Saharan Africa-based applicants must hold a Ph.D., DPhil, or MD, have active research experience, and be in the process of, or be ready for, transition to research independence.
Grant size: £300,000-£4,000,000
