Funding Opportunity for University Researchers: Health Research Bridging Salary Scheme

The new Health Research Bridging Salary Scheme will provide bridging salary for researchers on fixed term or open-ended externally-funded contracts that are ending in 2021-22 while they seek longer-term salary support. Staff from any University department who are conducting research in health-related areas are eligible to apply. The scheme will fund 80% of a researcher’s salary up to Grade 9.6 (or equivalent) for up to 6 months.

The Scheme aims to support as a priority researchers who have applied/are preparing to apply for an external fellowship or grant which includes at least two years’ of their own salary, and whose ability to complete projects, produce research outputs and submit applications has been hampered by the COVID-19 pandemic. If possible the Scheme will also support post-doctoral researchers who are not yet independent but who are on a near-term career trajectory towards independence.

The deadline to apply is 12pm on Wednesday 16 June 2021. For full information on eligibility and how to apply please see the scheme’s webpages.
