Newton International Fellowships are awarded by three of the UK’s national research academies – the Royal Society, the British Academy and the Academy of Medical Sciences.
The Fellowships provide an opportunity for some of the most talented post-doctoral researchers working overseas to carry out world-class research in UK institutions across all disciplines of natural sciences and engineering, social science and humanities, and patient-orientated research (or clinical research).
The Newton International Fellowship selects the very best early-stage post-doctoral researchers from all over the world and offers support for two years (or longer at 0.6 FTE for caring responsibilities). They provide grants of £24,000 (tax-exempt) per annum to cover subsistence and up to £8,000 per annum to cover research expenses, plus a one-off relocation allowance of up to £3,000 (£2,000 for EEA nationals). There is also financial support available for awardees dependants’ visas. The Fellowship also provides a contribution to overheads. In addition, Newton International Fellows may be eligible for follow-up funding of up to £6,000 per annum for up to 5 years following the completion of the Fellowship.
The deadline for applications is 26th March 2020 at 3PM UK Time.
