Funding opportunities for early- and mid-career researchers

Research Careers

We have a broad range of research grant funding schemes to cater for your situation, whether you're just getting started or an established independent researcher, and whether you require a fully funded fellowship or grants to advance individual projects.

Are you a clinician looking to develop your research career? Go to opportunities for clinician researchers.

Do you need help deciding which Fellowship to apply to? Our competency framework can guide you to consider which funding opportunity is right for you to support your transition to the next career level. 


*Full definitions and eligibility requirements for these career stages are set out in our Competency Framework.
