Newton International Fellowship

Newton International Fellowship - Various Institutions, United Kingdom

The next round of the Newton International Fellowship scheme is open for applications as of 14 December 2009. The scheme, run by The British Academy, The Royal Academy of Engineering and the Royal Society, aims to attract the world’s best postdoctoral researchers to UK Universities for two years. The Fellowships are open to non-British postdoctoral researchers.

The Fellowships cover the broad range of natural and social sciences, engineering and the humanities and are open to early-stage postdoctoral researchers who do not hold UK citizenship and are working outside the UK. Fifty Fellowships are available per round and successful candidates will receive an annual subsistence of £24,000, up to £8,000 for research expenses, and a one-off payment of up to £2,000 for relocation.

Newton Fellows may be eligible for follow-on funding of up to £6,000 per year for ten years, to help develop lasting international networks with the UK.

Applications are invited for Fellowships starting in January 2011. The deadline for applications is 8 February 2010.
