The RAEng Research Fellowships are designed to promote excellence in engineering. They provide support for high-quality engineers and encourage them to develop successful academic research careers.
Applications are welcomed from outstanding early career researchers who are about to finish their PhD or have been awarded their PhD in the last three years. The scheme provides funding for five years to encourage the best researchers to remain in the academic engineering sector. In addition to the direct financial support, the scheme offers:
- freedom to concentrate on basic research in any field of engineering
- time to establish a track record in the field
- the services of a mentor (a Fellow of the Academy) to offer advice and to facilitate the formation of industrial links
- restrictions of your teaching and administrative duties, so enabling you to dedicate your time to research
The scheme will be opened on 27 July 2015 and details will appear here.
