Please note this opportunity is now CLOSED.
View all OPEN opportunities

Applications across full MRC remit are welcome.

The MRC Skills Development Fellowship (SDF) scheme has for a number of years successfully supported many researchers in priority skills areas, in particular bringing together wider quantitative and biomedical skills. Supporting researchers in this way continues to be a high priority for the MRC, with the ultimate aim of embedding quantitative approaches as a fundamental part of modern biomedical/health related research.

The SDF scheme aims to provide 3-year training fellowships that:

  • Support very early career researchers to explore and further develop their skills in a priority area in which they are already active or in which they are seeking training; or
  • Support researchers at any career stage who wish to transform their career by developing new skills in a priority area.

Read more on the SDF scheme in our fellowship pages, and instructions for institutions wishing to apply to the MRC for SDF positions can be found in the guidance document on the right hand side of the page.
