Sanger Excellence Fellowship

The Wellcome Sanger Institute, in partnership with Wellcome Connecting Science, is launching a new three-year Fellowship aimed at people from Black heritage backgrounds. This new Fellowship is designed to attract research excellence and will provide the Fellows with training, mentorship and support to drive their careers forward and to support a more diverse pipeline of future talent.

This Fellowship is aimed at early career researchers and the general requirements are an undergraduate degree and PhD awarded from institutions from within the UK, the Republic of Ireland, Isle of Man and the Channel Islands (the common travel area).

The Fellows will be a part of the Postdoctoral Fellowship programme and will be paid in line with this pay scale (£33,272 – £41,709 in 2022), dependent on skills and experience. The Sanger Excellence Fellowship also includes research consumables of up to £18,000 per annum, dependent on the nature of the project and a budget of £1,500 per annum for the Fellow to attend conferences and training.
