Wellcome Trust VIP - Call for proposals 09/10

Wellcome Trust VIP Awards - call for proposals The Wellcome Trust offers this scheme with the aim of "helping universities in the recruitment, career progression and retention of key academic and research staff" (details can be found on the WT website) Following Round 1 there is around £60,000 available to Science & Engineering. Please note that, when dealing with point 4, proposals where a clear plan is set out are are more likely to be successful (writing that a member of staff will apply for a Fellowship from the Wellcome Trust at some point is not considered a clear plan). You should note that the Wellcome Trust mission is "supporting and promoting research to improve the health of humans and animals", and will fund only within this remit. Applications from each Head of School should be forwarded to me in the College Office not later than noon on Friday 26 February 2010. If Schools wish to nominate more than one candidate then a ranked list should be provided.
