3.2.1 CV

The applicant and any named researchers should submit a CV. Applicants should use the CV template available. No other CVs should be submitted unless you are applying for a clinical research training fellowship (CRTF), in which case the CRTF supervisor CV template should be completed also. CVs may be a maximum of two sides of A4.

Details of sponsors or supervisors should be included in the sponsors’ section of the form and they should not submit a CV except if applying to the clinical research training fellowship (as detailed above) or in exceptional cases where salary support is requested. In this case they should complete the sponsors’ section of the form and attach a CV.

The CV should outline the employment history. It should state the applicant’s current research organisation and salary and include details of any career breaks, specifying the duration of any breaks in months. A summary should be given of formal training and qualifications, including any training and qualification being undertaken at the time of submission, and any prizes and memberships of professional bodies should be noted.

Applicants for pre-doctoral fellowships who are registered for a higher degree must provide a letter from their postgraduate office confirming their registration date and the percentage of time for which they are registered.
