MRC Proximity to Discovery, call for Early Career Researchers

22 September 2016

Applications are now invited for internal shortlisting for Early Career Researchers; Knowledge Transfer Secondment Awards. Participants will have an opportunity to second into companies, social enterprises, charities and other non-academic organisations.

Funded through the MRC Proximity to Discovery (PtD) award to UCL, the Industrial Partnerships Group (TRO) is offering members of Early career research the opportunity to second into companies, social enterprises, charities and other non-academic organisations to form links and promote knowledge transfer and build long term research partnerships. This opportunity has been created as part of our mission to become a leader in collaboration with external enterprises and the wider life sciences community, both in London and beyond. It is important that UCL plays a key role in the growth of these communities so that we can promote a joined up and globally distinctive life sciences offering, ensure close working relationships, and promote joint working opportunities.

If you are interested please contact Lorna Ravenhill (l.ravenhill@ucl.ac.uk) from UCL Translational Research Office before the closing date.

Closing date: Sunday 2nd October 2016.
