[Closes 6 April 2018] Hamied Foundation UK-India AMR Visiting Professorships

The Academy of Medical Sciences is delighted to announce the inaugural call for applications to the Hamied Foundation UK-India Antimicrobial Resistance (AMR) Visiting Professorship Scheme. The scheme will support the travel and subsistence costs of UK researchers wishing to visit India to develop long-term collaborations in this highly-important and topical field of biomedical research.



The Academy of Medical Sciences is developing a programme that will seek to facilitate a long-term collaboration between the most talented researchers in the field of antimicrobial resistance (AMR) in the UK and India.  The programme will help to capacity build and is being generously supported by the Yusuf and Farida Hamied Foundation.  In addition to the Visiting Professorship scheme, it will also fund two major international scientific meetings.


You will be a Professor or senior group leader, based at a UK research institution, wishing to develop a collaboration with a researcher in India in the area of AMR. 

You will need to have a contract of employment that extends beyond the date for which funding is being sought. 

You will also need to have identified a suitable host in India to support your planned activities. 

What is Offered

The scheme will enable you to undertake a 1-2 week lecture tour of India with the potential inclusion of laboratory visits.  The scheme will cover the costs of UK-India travel and internal transfers, accommodation and subsistence, up to a maximum of £5000.

The proposed visit should take place within 10 months of the date of award.

The award may not be used to cover research costs or equipment.
