Newton International Fellowship Scheme – Deadline 8 February 2010

Dear academic,

The next round of the Newton International Fellowship scheme is currently open and closes on 8 February 2010. The scheme, run by The British Academy, The Royal Academy of Engineering and the Royal Society, aims to attract the world’s best postdoctoral researchers to the UK for two years.

The Fellowships cover the broad range of natural and social sciences, engineering and the humanities and are open to early-stage postdoctoral researchers who do not hold UK citizenship and are working outside the UK. Fifty Fellowships are available per round and successful candidates will receive an annual subsistence of £24,000, up to £8,000 for research expenses, and a one-off payment of up to £2,000 for relocation.

Newton Fellows may be eligible for follow-on funding of up to £6,000 per year for ten years, to help develop lasting international networks with the UK.

Applications are invited for Fellowships starting in January 2011 and further information is available . The deadline for applications is 8 February 2010. Please bring this scheme to the attention of any colleagues who may be interested.

Thank you for your help in promoting this important scheme.
