Research Fellowships and Engineering for Development Research Fellowships – deadline 23 September 2019

The 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.

The Academy welcomes applications from early-career researchers worldwide who have been awarded their PhD in the last four years. The scheme provides funding for five years. Each application is capped at a maximum contribution from the Academy of £500,000 over the five-year period, at 80% of full economic costs. In addition, Research Fellowships must be held at a UK higher education institution/university.

In addition to the direct financial support, the scheme benefits include:

  • opportunity to establish a research track record in a specialised area
  • a stronger position to apply for additional funding and develop own research team
  • mentoring support from an Academy Fellow to offer advice on research and career development
  • reduction of teaching and administrative duties to dedicate time to research
  • training opportunities
  • networking with other Research Fellows and Academy Fellows.
