Association is pleased to announce that the 2020 call for PhD Studentship and
Cecil King Memorial grant applications is now open.
Information about applying for the PhD Studentship and
Cecil King Memorial grants can be found here.
First launched in 2007, we are proud to continue our
support of early career psoriasis researchers by offering Psoriasis Association
PhD Studentship grants again in 2020. These studentships are for £85,500 over
three years and for successful PhD Studentship applicants, a £1000 travel grant
and a £500 outreach grant will also be available during the Studentship.
Alongside PhD Studentships, a small grant of up to
£10,000 is available through the Psoriasis Association. This is funded by
the Cecil King Memorial Foundation and is available for projects where the lead
researcher is under 35 years of age, or within the first five consecutive
years, at the time of application, of either their first permanent independent
academic research post or a named limited-tenured/fixed-term academic research
post, obtained in open competition (note that tenure must cover the duration of
the award) based in the UK or Ireland.
The Psoriasis Association will consider
applications from all disciplines, from basic science
through to health services research, providing the application has a clear
relevance to our aim ‘to promote and fund research into the
causes, nature and care of psoriasis and to publish and disseminate the results
of that research’. Applications that address one of
the ‘Psoriasis Top 10’ research priorities, are of high scientific quality and are good value
for money will be looked on favourably.
The 2020 grant application process opened on Monday
7th September, and will close on Friday 4th December 2020.
