EPSRC’s Capability and Challenge Themes have gone through an initial exercise of prioritising the areas in which fellowships will be offered. This will be an ongoing process and priority areas will be updated on a regular basis throughout the Delivery Plan period.
EPSRC will NOT accept applications in areas outside of those identified.
Applicants should refer to the thematic programme priorities for additional details on the research areas we wish to appoint fellows in.
Please note, the EPSRC fellowship scheme has no closing dates for the submission of applications. If you are planning of applying for a fellowship with us, please get in touch.
The Natural Environment Research Council Fellowship scheme provides opportunities for outstanding environmental scientists to devote their time to:
* develop their research careers
* produce work of international importance
NERC Council has decided to streamline the provision of responsive mode Fellowships into a single scheme - the NERC Independent Research Fellowships (IRFs) - that will replace the previous schemes (Postdoctoral Fellowships and Advanced Fellowships).
Ernest Rutherford Fellowships (The next call will be announced in June 2012)
The Ernest Rutherford Fellowship scheme was announced on 29 March 2011.
The Fellowships will enable early career researchers with clear leadership potential to establish a strong, independent research programme. They will encourage talented researchers in UK universities to remain in the country and at the same time attract outstanding overseas researchers to the UK. This new scheme replaces and builds on STFC's Advanced Fellowship programme.
Each Fellowship will last for five years, with 12 being offered annually. Fellows will receive support for their salary and be able to bid for significant additional funds to support their research. When the scheme reaches its full cohort of 60 Ernest Rutherford Fellows in 2016, the funds available for this additional research support will total £3M per year.
The Royal Society has various fellowship schemes, including the highly prestigious five year University Research Fellowships and the two year Newton International Fellowships, among others.
- Royal Society University Research Fellowships
- Royal Society Dorothy Hodgkin Fellowships
- Newton International Fellowships
The Leverhulme Trust also has several fellowship programmes.
