(A full list of Faculty members is shown here, which includes their contact information and research interests.) If your outline proposal is supported by a faculty member, you will be issued with a confirmation code which needs including in the application form. Without this code the form will not submit.
The sponsoring Faculty member must submit a letter of support to the Post-Doc Committee clarifying the nature of their involvement in the preparation of the proposal and a statement that they will underwrite any research costs over and above the ¿15K per year provided by the fellowship.

Candidates will have recently (within one year) completed their PhD or are close to completion (e.g. at thesis submission stage). In the latter case, award of a Sanger Postdoctoral Fellowship will be subject to successful completion of the PhD.
