This scheme is for scientists who would benefit from a period of full-time research without teaching and administrative duties.
The scheme reimburses the employing institution with the full salary cost of a teaching replacement.
The scheme covers all areas of the life and physical sciences, including engineering, but excluding clinical medicine.
The applicant must
- have a PhD or equivalent
- hold a permanent post at a UK university or not-for-profit institution
- be at a stage in their career when they would particularly benefit from a period of full-time research
The award lasts between one term and one academic year.
The applicant’s employing institution will be reimbursed for the full salary cost of a teaching replacement (up to the equivalent of the minimum point on the lectureship scale as paid by the host university).
Research expenses up to a maximum of £2,500 are available to each fellow to cover the costs of consumables, equipment, travel and communicating science.
Eligibility requirement can be found in the scheme notes.
