All applicants are strongly encouraged to refer to the Guidance for Applicants and FAQs before completing their application.
All potential applicants and their Host Institutions should ensure that they have also reviewed Pancreatic Cancer UK’s Terms and Conditions, which set out the standard terms applicable to Career Foundation Fellowships funded by Pancreatic Cancer UK.
Applicants can undertake a proportion of their Fellowship in another (UK based or non-UK based) Institute of a named Collaborator however, Pancreatic Cancer UK will contract with one UK-based Host Institution only and it will be the responsibility of the Host Institution to agree subcontracts with the other Institutions involved in the Fellowship. Our experience is that this subcontracting takes a significant amount of time, so we advise you to coordinate discussion with the Institutes involved as soon as possible as you are developing your proposal. Applicants undertaking a proportion of their Fellowship at another Institute with a named Collaborator will also be required to include a signed letter of support from the Finance Department of the Institute.
Applicants should be aware that their proposals will also be reviewed by people with lived experience of pancreatic cancer and are therefore strongly encouraged to demonstrate how they have already/intend to involve people with lived experience in the development and delivery of their work. At Pancreatic Cancer UK, we have a fantastic Research Involvement Network (RIN) made up of over 250 individuals that have been affected by pancreatic cancer including patients, carers, loved ones and survivors. They give valuable insight and help to ensure that research is centred around the needs of patients. If you would like members of RIN to help shape your application you can find out more about how to do this here. Please get in touch with the Research Team as soon as possible and by no later than 30th September 2021 (for Career Foundation Fellowships) if you would like to discuss this further or if you have any questions.
