The Irish Cancer Society is now accepting Expression of Interest (EOI) applications for the Social, Nursing, and Allied Health Sciences (SNAH) Research Fellowship 2020.

The objective of the Irish Cancer Society Social, Nursing, and Allied Health (SNAH) Research Fellowship is to support excellent early- to mid-stage (0-6 years’ experience post-PhD or equivalent) cancer researchers and clinical professionals (nurses and allied health professionals) to develop as independent researchers. This Fellowship (2 years full time, 3-4 years part time) is specifically intended to fund research that seeks to reduce the burden of cancer. Applications in the areas of basic or translational biomedical research are not eligible. 

Please see the guidelines and FAQ for more information. 

All eligible EOI applications will be reviewed by an international scientific panel. Shortlisted applicants will be invited to submit a full application. There is funding available for one fellowship in 2020.
