  • Deadline: 27 March 2019

This scheme is for non-UK scientists who are at an early stage of their research career and wish to conduct research in the UK.

The scheme provides the opportunity for the best early stage post-doctoral researchers from all over the world to work at UK research institutions for a period of two years.

The scheme is jointly run by the British Academy, the Academy of Medical Sciences and the Royal Society. Currently there is one round per year which opens in January.

The Royal Society's remit covers the natural and physical sciences, including biological research, chemistry, engineering, mathematics and physics.

Applications for the humanities and social sciences should be made to the British Academy.

Applications for clinical and patient oriented research should be made to the Academy of Medical Sciences.

If you are unsure about which academy to apply to, contact info@newtonfellowships.org.
