Applicants will be assessed against the criteria listed for the transition to independence in the applicant skills and experience table, taking into consideration the support provided by the host research organisation. You are strongly advised to review these criteria and discuss these with your research organisation when developing your application and in securing an appropriate statement of support from your host organisation. Your proposal will be peer reviewed by independent scientific experts in the UK and overseas. For more information please see our pages on peer review at the MRC.
