We wouldn't usually expect you to apply if you already have a Master's.

What we're looking for

Your research proposal should focus on an area within our public health and tropical medicine remit. Research can include laboratory-based molecular analysis of field or clinical samples, but we don't normally consider projects focused solely on studies in vitro or using animal models.

When we consider your application, we'll look at:

  • the quality and importance of your research question(s)
  • the feasibility of your approach to solving these problems
  • the suitability of your choice of research environments
  • the suitability of the taught Master's course you select – it should take place at a recognised centre of excellence and provide you with training that will complement your research project.

What's expected of your host organisation

You must be based at an eligible host organisation in a low- or middle-income country for the research project. When your host organisation submits your application, they must agree to provide the space and resources you’ll need from the start date through to the end date of your award.

Sponsor and supervisor

You should give careful thought to your choice of sponsor and supervisor. Your sponsor should:

  • hold an established post for the duration of the fellowship
  • have an ongoing research programme
  • have a strong track record in research, training and mentorship
  • provide you with guidance during the application process and fellowship.

Your sponsor should not expect you to spend more than eight hours a week on non-research activities (eg clinical duties, teaching or administration).

Your sponsor's support and mentorship should be part of a longer-term commitment to help you achieve your career aspirations.

You should also identify a supervisor who will be responsible for the day-to-day supervision of your research project. We expect you to identify additional supervisors for each period that you spend outside your host organisation, including your taught course.

You can nominate your sponsor as a supervisor, if appropriate.
