The incumbents will be designated Kay Kendall Leukaemia Fund Junior Research Fellows. There will be up to 3 such Junior Fellowships awarded annually, generally at least one from each of the following categories :

  • Scientific fellow

Postdoctoral scientists with 0-3 years’ experience and intending to work either at a recognised UK research institution or seeking a travel fellowship for relevant work abroad may apply for a scientific fellowship.

Clinicians seeking funding for a PhD in the field of leukaemia research, usually at a UK centre, may apply for a clinical research fellowship. Level of remuneration, laboratory expenses, travel expenses
