You can apply for this opportunity if:

  3. Your proposed research focuses on a health priority in a low or middle-income country.
  4. You must have a sponsor who is ahead of department or equivalent like a center director or head of school in your host organization.

  6. You have sponsorship from an eligible host organization in a low or middle-income country.
  7. You are driving your own research and be ready to lead an independent research program.
  8. You have a PhD or you're a clinically qualified doctor and qualified to enter higher specialist training, vet, dentist or clinically qualified psychologist.

  10. You have made important contributions to your area of research like publications, patents, software development or an impact on health policy or practice.
  11. You have a permanent or rolling employment contract, but only if you're at the early stages of an independent career.

  2. The scientific merit of your proposed project.
