About Springboard Population Science Fellows

UCL Springboard Population Science Fellows are outstanding researchers, with exceptional research track records for their career stage

  • Fellows carry out innovative and visionary research in Functional ageing and multimorbidity or Genomic, metabolomic and proteomic predictors of disease, encompassing computational biology and systems medicine
  • UCL Springboard Population Science Fellowships provide a means for fellows to establish themselves at UCL and consolidate their position, for example by conducting some preliminary analysis of data, to submit competitive applications for externally-funded fellowship or other personal awards
  • Fellows are supported to submit applications to major funding bodies at a relatively early stage during 18 month Springboard Population Science Fellowship, so that they win substantial financial support that will enable them to establish an independent research career

    The Fellowship Package

      • Fellowships are awarded for 18 months
      • Support is provided for the fellow's salary costs as well as £10,000 research support costs
      • Fellows are sponsored by a senior academic member of staff who acts as supervisor and ensures that fellows receive dedicated research space, support and facilities to allow them to establish and pursue their own research agenda
