The Amsterdam UMC Fellowship aims to attract extremely talented researchers, who have the potential to build, expand and maintain their own successful research group. The Amsterdam UMC Fellowship is awarded once a year, and will be announced on the Amsterdam UMC vacancy site.

The Amsterdam UMC Fellowship is an awarded tenure track, based on the criteria of what is formerly known as the AMC Tenure Track.

The fellowship awards a maximum of €750,000 for the full term of five years (or less for a shorter period, on a pro rata basis), covering the salary of the fellow, the salary of a PhD-student and/or their bench fees.

The selection procedure will only take place if there are sufficient qualified candidates. If the selected candidate meets the criteria, nomination can take place. The fellowship has to be accepted or declined within three months after formal approval.
