New Round of Newton Fellowships
A new round of Newton Fellowships - an initiative
to fund research collaborations and improve links
between UK and overseas researchers - has opened.
The Newton International Fellowships are funded
by the British Academy, the Royal Academy of
Engineering and the Royal Society and aim to
attract the most promising post-doctoral
researchers working overseas in the fields of
humanities, engineering, natural and social
sciences. The Fellowships enable researchers to
work for two years with a UK research
institution, thus establishing long-term international collaborations.
The funding will be distributed in the form of 50
research fellowships, awarded annually, each
providing support of up to £100,000 for a two
year placement. The scheme is open to
post-doctoral (and equivalent) early-career
researchers working outside the UK who do not hold UK citizenship.
The closing date for applications is Monday, 12 January 2009.
