Colt Foundation Fellowships in Occupational/Environmental Health 2011

The Foundation awards Fellowships each year to persons who are qualified in science or medicine who are carrying out research within the area of occupational and environmental health at a UK university. The Fellowship is normally for three years and the research is expected to lead to a PhD degree.

The stipend rate for the first year is £12,000 (£13,000 inside London), rising with inflation for the following two years. UK fees will be paid as incurred, together with a sum to cover research expenses. The grant does not attraction any taxation.

Application Process

Prospective students should apply to Mrs Jackie Douglas ([email protected]) and should include:

  • an outline of the proposed research which demonstrates the occupational content of their work,
  • a CV,
  • a detailed letter of support from the proposed supervisor and
  • the contact details of two referees.

The application must be submitted by the student personally and not by their supervisor on their behalf, although it is expected that the supervisor will have an input to ensure that the project can lead to a successful PhD. Fellowships are awarded in competition, and the outline must therefore contain sufficient detail to enable the Selection Panel to determine that the work has been well-designed, the work is worthwhile and can be completed in the three-year period, and to enable the Panel to decide which students should be interviewed.

The closing date for receipt of applications will be 17th October 2011, and those shortlisted for interview will be asked to attend in London during December 2011.

If there are any queries about the Colt Foundation Fellowships, please contact Jackie Douglas on 023 9249 1400, or email: [email protected] or write to The Colt Foundation, New Lane, Havant, Hampshire PO9 2LY.
