Applicants must have a doctoral degree (including PhD, MD, MD/PhD, or equivalent) in a related field and not currently be a candidate for a further doctoral degree.

Applicants with a medical degree must have completed their most recent doctoral degree or medical residency - whichever date is later - within the past three years.
