Applications for this scheme are now open. RAEng/Leverhulme Trust Senior Research Fellowships allow academics to concentrate on full-time research and be relieved of teaching and administrative responsibilities.
The purpose of the Fellowships is to cover the salary costs of a replacement academic who will take over the awardee’s teaching and administration duties for up to one year. These fellowships provide engineering academics with an opportunity to reinvigorate their research careers, enhance their current research interests or start new lines of research without teaching or administrative constraints. They also provide an opportunity for the junior academic to gain valuable teaching and administrative experience by covering the duties of the awardee. An additional support fund of up to £2,500 is available to the awardee for miscellaneous research costs.
Applications must be received by 4.00pm on Wednesday 19 October 2016.
