Brain Research UK Postdoctoral Fellowships
Closing Date: –
Fellowships to support postdoctoral researchers carrying out clinical and non-clinical projects focusing on the fundamental mechanisms and development of therapies for primary tumours of the brain and spinal cord, acquired brain and spinal cord injury, or headache and facial pain.
Brain Research UK is a research charity dedicated to funding high-quality neurological research with the potential to achieve the greatest impact and improve quality of life for people affected by neurological conditions. Its support for research focuses on priority areas with a particularly high, un-met level of patient need.
The Brain Research UK research funding programme is aimed at hypothesis-driven, pre-clinical or clinical research that addresses large unmet need and demonstrates a clear pathway to translation within the highlighted priority areas. All projects must have a mechanistic hypothesis and a clear pathway to translation.
Following a review of its funding programmes in 2022/23, Brain Research UK has launched the Postdoctoral Fellowships to support early career postdoctoral researchers
Priority areas for support include:
- Headache and facial pain – research that aims to improve the management and treatment of headache or facial pain disorders. Projects should address the fundamental causes, mechanisms, diagnosis or treatment of headache and facial pain.
- Neuro-oncology – research that aims to improve clinical outcomes for patients with primary tumours of the brain or spinal cord. Projects should address the fundamental causes, mechanisms, diagnosis or treatment or primary tumours of the brain or spinal cord, and associated neurological complications.
- Acquired brain and spinal cord injuries – research that aims to protect or restore function in patients following brain or spinal cord injury. Projects should address the mechanisms of the injury, the mechanisms of the recovery process, and determinants of outcome.
