Alan Williams Fellowships - call for applications Closing date Friday 21st April 2017

Posted on 23 March 2017

Applications are invited from researchers wishing to visit the Centre for Health Economics at the University of York in order to produce a collaborative piece of research, led by the applicant.

Applications from experienced career researchers are particularly welcome, but we will consider early career researchers who make an exceptionally strong application and have a well thought out project proposal. The value of the fellowship is up to £5,000, intended as a contribution towards living and travel expenses associated with the visit. Visits should take place between August 2017 - July 2018.

The Fellowships were first launched in 2006 as a tribute to Alan Williams and to enable health economists from anywhere in the world to spend time in York, working on collaborative research.

  • The research should be collaborative with a member(s) of CHE staff but will be led by the applicant.
