MRC New Investigator Research Grants

  Wednesday, 13 May 2020 | Funding Deadline

MRC New Investigator Research Grants (NIRG) are aimed at researchers who are capable of becoming independent Principal Investigators and who are now ready to take the next step towards that goal. Applicants are expected to combine time spent on the NIRG with a portfolio of other activities, such as time spent on other research grants or clinical duties, teaching, administration duties, or other time spent in faculty (this list is not exhaustive). As such, applicants are normally expected to request up to, but no more than, 50% of their contracted working time on the NIRG.
