Academic Fellowship Scheme

Deadline: 18/01/2006
October 31, 2005

The primary aim of the Research Councils UK Academic Fellowship scheme is to provide contract research staff with more attractive and stable paths into academia. With this in mind, the five-year fellowships will be subject to the HEI guaranteeing a permanent, academic position following the end of the award. Award recipients should have a PhD or be of postdoctoral standing. Each five-year award is worth £125,000 in total and funds will be provided to the HEI in equal instalments across the duration of the award.
