These fellowships provide the opportunity for outstanding investigators to establish an independent research program within the Kennedy Institute’s stimulating and supportive research environment.

The Kennedy Trust for Rheumatology Research (KTRR) offers funding for two Senior Fellowships at the Kennedy Institute of Rheumatology at the University of Oxford. The fellowships will be awarded to outstanding applicants whose research interests align with scientific themes within the Kennedy Institute.

The award provides investigators with a generous funding package that is complemented by the Kennedy Institute's state-of-the-art core facilities, as well as close ties with research centres throughout the University of Oxford. This combination of support creates a platform for early stage researchers to establish an independent research career.

The first KTRR Senior Fellowship was awarded to Dr. Tal Arnon, in 2013. Tal now receives additional funding as part of a Wellcome Trust Independent Investigator award.
