2016 Prostate Cancer UK Travelling Prize Fellowships

This call is now closed.

Building on the success of last year, we will shortly be launching the second round of our Travelling Prize Fellowships.

Our Travelling Prize Fellowships provide a unique opportunity for the most promising prostate cancer researchers to make an early start in developing their independent research careers, working in the best research environments in the UK and overseas, and holding substantial funding as a principal investigator.

Our aim is for these Fellowships to support the most outstanding researchers to begin to develop their own research programme, setting them up to be competitive for fellowships at more senior levels, accelerating their career trajectories, and ultimately ensuring that they make the biggest difference for men affected by prostate cancer as quickly as possible.

A Prize Fellowship offers funding for up to 4 years and must include a period of at least 6 months outside of the Fellows' host institution (either elsewhere in the UK, or abroad). Awards can be for up to £250K if solely based in the UK, or a total of £300K if the Fellowship includes a placement at one or more institutions outside the UK.

Please see the guidance notes for further details on eligibility and the application process.


2015 Movember Foundation PhD Studentships in Bioinformatics

This call is now closed. We do not have any plans to re-open this call.


With funding from the Movember Foundation, we will be using our PhD scheme to address a clear gap that we believe is likely to limit progress in prostate cancer in the coming years. That area is bioinformatics.  We believe that a significant gap already exists with an insufficient number of researchers with expertise in both statistics/data analysis and prostate cancer.

The scheme is for applicants proposing to train a bioinformatician to PhD level with a project that aligns with our new research strategy.

Studentships will be for either three or four years and usually provide funds for a tax-free stipend, fees, research expenses and travel. It is not necessary to have identified a student at the application stage.

We will also consider bids for multiple prostate cancer-focussed PhDs from institutions already running large scale PhD schemes in bioinformatics, or that will allow institutions to set up new programmes with a cohort of prostate cancer focussed students.

Please see the guidance notes for further details on eligibility and the application process.
