Opportunity for early career researchers

We are inviting applications from Early Career Researchers for quick fire funding for pilot studies. 

Preference will be given in the following order:  

  1. Proposals involving 2 groups from different institutions who have previously not worked together, 
  2. Proposals involving 2 groups from different institutions and iii proposals from a single institution that demonstrate significant novelty and that require preliminary data for a full grant application. 

A Leeds ultrasound system (128 imaging channels, 10 HIFU channels) is also available for loan to facilitate these studies.  We will also consider applications to continue pilot studies that have not yet obtained sufficient data to secure further funding.

Funding will be up to a maximum of £50k (paid at 80% FEC) for ~ 4 months.  Any monies won must be spent by 31st August 2021.  Applications, which should be no more than 2 A4 pages, should outline the research to be done, give a short justification of the money being requested, and should be sent to caroline.saunders@icr.ac.uk  by March 15th 2021
