Imperial College Research Fellowships

Imperial College London is delighted to invite applications for the Imperial College Research Fellowship scheme, to give outstanding early-career researchers an opportunity to develop independent research programmes. We will be awarding up to 20 fellowships, to start between August and December 2018.

Each one offers up to four years funding (stipend in the range of £36,070 to £41,110 per annum (2016/17 fi gures), plus a generous contribution to research expenses). Fellowships are designed to provide freedom to focus on research: there are no obligatory teaching or administrative duties. Applicants will be encouraged to apply for additional sources of funding to allow them to strengthen their research programme.

Proposals will be accepted in all research areas active at Imperial College London. Multidisciplinary projects are welcomed as are collaborations with The Francis Crick Institute http://www.crick.ac.uk/.

In addition, AstraZeneca and Imperial will be awarding up to 2 fellowships, each offering up to three years funding with a minimum of 1 year in residence at one of the AstraZeneca research centres. For more information, contact Dr Vjera Magdalenic-Moussavi at v.magdalenic@imperial.ac.uk.

Applicants will need to identify an Imperial academic staff member to act as their sponsor who will provide laboratory space, facilities and mentorship for the tenure of the fellowship. Candidates may be from the UK or abroad and will be normally expected to have no more than 4 years post-doctoral research experience in an academic environment at the time of application. Proposals will be judged primarily on the basis of scientifi c merit, track record of the applicant and potential for development of an independent
research programme.

For more information and application forms see: www.imperial.ac.uk/research-fellowships.

Enquiries should be directed to Dr Suzanne Rolfe at researchfellowships@imperial.ac.uk

Deadline for proposals is Tuesday 29 August 2017 (11.59pm GMT)
