2-2.12 Considerations before applying


2.2 Time commitments during a fellowship

All MRC fellowship schemes provide competitive salaries, allowing fellows protected time to fully concentrate on their research, training and development and establish a competitive position by the end of the award. Fellows in receipt of full-time awards may spend up to six hours a week (pro-rated for part-time fellows) on other commitments (for example, teaching, demonstrating, other funded projects) or undertaking up to two clinical sessions a week in the case of clinical fellows. Greater flexibility may be permitted during the second half of a fellowship. Existing fellows wishing to dedicate over six hours a week to non-fellowship activities must contact fellows@mrc.ukri.org to request permission prior to making any commitment.
