A career in the charitable sector

Rebecca McIntosh


Wellcome Trust, London, UK.


Since completing a PhD in Developmental Neurobiology at King’s College London, I have worked as a Grants Adviser at the Wellcome Trust. Not-for-profit organisations like the Wellcome Trust hold a diverse range of career opportunities for scientists with PhD and post-doctoral experience, from communications to research management. In this short overview talk I’ll give an insight into the role of the Grants Adviser, the opportunities for scientists in the charitable sector as well as what the move from the lab into this sector is like.
