Funding Scheme available to British Heart Foundation (BHF) Chairholders


Professor Costanza Emanueli, British Heart Foundation Chair of Cardiovascular Science, University of Bristol, is looking for a talented scholar to sponsor under a BHF scholarship scheme. The scholarship will be available from June 2017, however, it is possible to start the contract from April 2017.

The candidate should be able to co-write a grant and/or prepare a personal fellowship during the scholarship period (15-17 months). The scheme pays either the scholar’s salary or a BHF stipend and university fees (if the scholar has registered for a PhD). The scheme aims to support young researchers for an interim period while they secure longer-term funding from the BHF or another source, ultimately encouraging and helping them to pursue a career in academic cardiovascular science or medicine.
