Third call for Race Against Dementia-ARUK Fellowships!

Posted on the 3rd May 2022

Join us in the race against dementia!

Thanks to your support, Race Against Dementia have committed a further £500,000 to dementia research and are thrilled to announce a third call for Race Against Dementia-Alzheimer’s Research UK Fellows, with the intention to co-fund two further Fellowships with ARUK commencing in 2023.

Applications are now open and close at midday on 27th July 2022. You can apply here.

RAD offers developmental opportunities for Fellows, including a mentorship scheme where Fellows will be matched with top academic scientists, industry and/or commercial professionals, including from the world of Formula One racing.

RAD also hosts an annual symposium, where Fellows will have a unique opportunity to participate in a community of expertise, and to interact with a diverse range of stakeholders. A shared focus will be to develop techniques and processes to drive faster progress in dementia research.

RAD would like Fellows to explore the potential for collaborations and secondments outside of their host Institutions, either within the UK or internationally. These should be determined based on the requirements of the project and the Fellow, and so it is possible that opportunities will arise at any time during the Fellowship. Whilst applicants do not need to secure opportunities at the time they submit their proposals, they should consider how they would benefit most from potential collaborations and secondments. We can support applicants and Fellows by providing networking opportunities and facilitating introductions both across academia and into relevant industrial and commercial institutions.

We look forward to hearing from you and welcome your application.

Recorded on the 16th November 2020 and hosted by ARUK, this webinar includes helpful information on the Fellowship and useful hints and tips from our current Fellows, Dr Christy Hung, Dr Cara Croft and Dr Claire Durrant.
A must watch if you are interested in applying!
