Wellcome Trust–MIT Interdisciplinary Postdoctoral Fellowships

The Wellcome Trust–MIT Postdoctoral Fellowships provide four years’ support for recently qualified postdoctoral researchers to gain experience of research at the interface of biology/medicine and mathematics, engineering, computer, physical or chemical sciences.

Funded fellows will tackle important biomedical research questions using an interdisciplinary approach in the best laboratories. The fellowships are based on two to three years at MIT in the US, followed by one to two years in the UK.

Applications are encouraged from biomedical scientists with an interest in interdisciplinary research involving technologies and/or approaches that are not typically used in this area, or candidates trained in disciplines outside of the biomedical sciences who wish to apply their expertise to biomedical problems.
