Who can apply and how to apply


1.3 How to apply

All applications must be submitted via the Joint Electronic Submission system (Je-S).

When an application is submitted through Je-S it does not pass directly to MRC, but to the research organisation’s administration team who will then submit the proposal to MRC.

All applications must be submitted through the lead research organisation where the fellow plans to undertake the fellowship, which in turn must be Je-S registered.

All applicants are strongly advised to contact the team responsible for proposal submissions at their research organisation to confirm how much time they will need to process the application and complete the submission process.

All applications must be submitted to MRC via the Je-S system by 4:00pm UK time on the advertised closing date. See MRC’s table of application deadlines.

Applicants are advised to check the deadlines regularly as they may change.

Applications received after the deadline will not be considered.
