Newton International Fellowships

The deadline for sending expressions of interest to Institute Directors is Tuesday 27 February 2018.

All SAS member institutes welcome proposals from suitably qualified applicants for the Newton International Fellowships scheme. These enable early-stage postdoctoral researchers from any country outside UK to work at UK research institutions with the aim of fostering long-term international collaborations.

Applicants must have a PhD, or be in the final stages of their PhD, provided it will be completed by the start of the fellowship. Fellowships are tenable for up to two years. They include a subsistence award of up to £24,000 per year, up to £8,000 per year for research expenses and a one-off payment of up to £2,000 for relocation expenses. Further specifications are available on the British Academy (for humanities and social sciences) and the Royal Society (for natural sciences) websites.

Process

Expressions of interest must be sent to the relevant institute director (CC research@sas.ac.uk) by 27 February 2018. The expression of interest should include:

  • CV
  • A 100-word abstract
  • An outline (2 pages maximum) of the research proposal, including intended publication outputs
  • A suggested co-applicant at the host Institute

Once approved, the application process will be coordinated by the School Research Services.
