The UK Royal Academy of Engineering offers Research Fellowships each year to outstanding early-career researchers to support them to become future research leaders in engineering. The scheme’s objectives are to:
- support the best early-career researchers in establishing their independence and international reputation
- provide long-term support enabling the pursuit of an ambitious programme of engineering research and impact
- develop ambassadors for the Academy and advocates for STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) disciplines
Research Fellowships must be held at a UK higher education institution/university in a department that can show it is capable of fully supporting an engineering-focused research project and researcher. In addition, the host institution must agree to provide the Research Fellow all the support normal for a permanent employee.
It is the responsibility of the applicant to contact the host institution and gain the formal approval from the relevant head of department or school before submitting an application.
There are no nationality and age restrictions for applicants. The host institution is responsible for securing all necessary work permits and related costs for the Research Fellows.
The submission deadline is Monday 23 September 2019. Find out more about eligibility and how to apply here.
