African Career Acceleration Fellowships Applications to the second round of Crick Africa Network fellowships are now open until 12 November 2023.

The Francis Crick Institute has just announced a new round of fellowships in the Crick Africa Network.

The African Career Acceleration Fellowships are supported by LifeArc and are for early-career African biomedical scientists to develop translational scientific programmes and become independent scientists. The Institute is looking for, a keen interest in translational science, and a commitment to establishing their own research groups and continuing their careers on the African continent.

Fellows will be hosted at one of 5 African institutions (MRC Gambia, MRC Uganda, University of Cape Town, Stellenbosch University and University of Ghana) for a fully-funded 4-year post-doctoral research grant, and will also have funding to visit the Crick and make use of their lab facilities.
