Up to £25,000 is available to fund the direct costs of research.
This annual research grant is offered in the areas of human nutrition, animal nutrition (as distinct from animal husbandry), and crop science to help postdoctoral scientists establish their careers as independent investigators.
The grant is available to newly appointed lecturers, researchers or fellows with their own independent support who are within the first two years of their appointment, typically 3-9 years from their PhD, although allowances will be made for career breaks.
Rank Prize will also consider applications from clinicians in an academic clinical post or supported by an appropriate fellowship.
The grant cannot be used to fund indirect or overhead costs, or to fund the salary of the grant-holder.
The deadline for applications is 23:59 Monday 23 August, 2021. Please note incomplete or late applications will not be considered.
Shortlisted applicants will be interviewed by members of Rank Prize's Nutrition Committee on the morning of Wednesday 17 November 2021. We hope that these interviews will be held in person in London, but depending on pandemic-related restrictions the interviews may be conducted via Zoom
