We constantly review the funding and career support we offer our researchers.
Our Research Career Re-entry Fellowships offer postdoctoral research scientists the opportunity to re-establish their scientific career after a continuous break from research of at least two years.
The Wellcome Sanger Institute’s Janet Thornton Fellowships help scientists to return to research after a career break of a year or more.
If you need to take sick leave, we'll supplement your grant to cover your salary and contribute towards your research costs.
If you’re funded by us, you can request flexible and part-time working. We always try to accommodate requests, as long as they fit in with the needs of employing organisations.
