Postdoctoral and Advanced Fellowships
These are intended for researchers who do not have a permanent academic position but wish to pursue a long term research career. They offer the opportunity to pursue new and diverse areas of research at a chosen UK Institution. Postdoctoral fellowships enable less experienced researchers to devote themselves to independent and original research for a period of up to three years. Applicants must have or expect to have a PhD. Advanced Fellowships enable outstanding researchers the opportunity to pursue full-time research for a period of up to five years. The intention is to further the careers of individuals of outstanding potential. Applicants should have at least two years research experience at postdoctoral level and have proved their ability as an individual and independent researcher.

Senior Research Fellowships
Intended for researchers who currently hold a permanent academic position but would like the opportunity to devote themselves to full-time personal research free of restrictions imposed by their employment, for a period of three years.
