Four prestigious early career Fellowships are available at the
University of York's Centre for Future Health to support world-class
researchers in the broad domain of health. The scheme is jointly
funded by the Wellcome Trust and the University of York and is open to
individuals from across the sciences, social sciences and the arts and
humanities. Fellowships offer salary in the range of £38,882 - £47,722
