  • your track record
  • the quality and importance of your research question(s)
  • your approach to solving these questions
  • the suitability of your research environment.

  • stay in your current laboratory (even if you already hold an established post)
  • return to a laboratory that you’ve worked in before
  • move to a new laboratory in a low- or middle-income country.
Sponsor

  • hold an established post for the duration of the fellowship
  • have an ongoing research programme
  • have a strong track record in research, training and mentorship
  • provide you with guidance during the application process and fellowship.

Your sponsor should not expect you to spend more than eight hours a week on non-research activities (eg clinical duties, teaching or administration).
