Alzheimer’s Society fellowships support researchers across the UK who aim to understand more about the causes of dementia, who are working towards a cure and looking to improving the care of those living with the condition.

The following fellowship and studentship opportunities are available:

  • Senior Fellowships: A Senior Fellowship is for post-doctoral or other successful researchers who wish to build on a number of successful years of dementia research, and who demonstrate the ambition and potential to be a leader in their research field at the end of the award.
