Rank Prize Funds:  Nutrition Committee Travel Awards

Aim:

These awards are available to assist early- and mid-career scientists to make and establish contacts with international counterparts by spending time in an institution outside the UK. The awards are available for work in the broad areas of human nutrition or crop science.

Background:

Researchers are often aware of laboratories and research groups outside the UK that have new techniques and methodologies that they would like to implement in their own research programmes, or which have facilities and data that are not available, or in limited supply, in the UK. Frequently such techniques are best learned by working alongside other researchers so that the difficulties and essential “know how” can be quickly assimilated without the pain of learning everything from scratch. Re-skilling is an essential element of every research scientist’s career. The Rank Prize Funds Nutrition Committee would like to encourage independent research scientists in early- or mid-career to experience a different international working environment and to acquire new skills or to access facilities or data that are unavailable in their home institution. The Committee is keenly aware that spending time away from family can be difficult at these career stages so is prepared to entertain imaginative proposals that reduce this potential difficulty.

 Eligibility:

The award is available to members of academic and research staff of UK universities research institutes and other organisations who are defined as eligible for funding under the criteria used by research councils. Although there is no restriction on the rank or salary band of applicants, the Committee will give priority to those in early- or mid-career.

 What the award can cover:

The award can be used to cover the costs of transport to the overseas laboratory and for reasonable accommodation and subsistence costs while there. Laboratory consumables can be claimed together with any fixed charges for use of equipment or access to data. A contribution to the costs of child care (if needed) either in the UK or at the host institution can be considered. The maximum sum for any individual application will be £7,500; up to four awards will be available.

 No contribution will be made to the applicant’s salary nor will a bench fee to the host institution be paid except in exceptional circumstances.

 Application process:

Applications should be submitted to The Rank Prize Funds by 17.00 on Wednesday 1 February 2017 using the form available below. It is expected that the Committee will consider these within six weeks and determine a shortlist of candidates. If necessary, applicants may be called for an interview and a final decision will be confirmed by the end of March.

 Reporting:

Successful applicants will be expected to provide a short (2 to 3 pages) written report within six weeks of their return to the UK describing the work undertaken, new skills acquired and the use to which these skills will be put at their home institution. They may be invited to make a short presentation at a meeting of the Committee in London.

If you want the quality of your education and experiences recognised then perhaps you should consider applying to be a registered nutritionist.
