Royal Society University Research Fellowship Scheme

last modified Jul 20, 2016 12:24 PM

The Royal Society is pleased to announce that its prestigious early career scheme, the University Research Fellowship (URF), is now open for applications. This scheme supports outstanding scientists in the UK by providing them with long term support at an early stage in their careers.

 

We look forward to supporting the next generation of scientific leaders and believe that in order to do so, science needs to make the best use of the research capabilities of the entire population. To help with this, I have attached a flyer about our early career schemes. We would appreciate you sharing this with outstanding early career scientists across all disciplines and do give consideration to any women, or other under-represented groups, that might be encouraged to apply.

 

The Society’s fellowships are highly flexible and there is provision for maternity, paternity, adoptive or extended sick leave. These terms apply to all of our fellowships, including the three early-career schemes: University Research Fellowships covering the physical and biological sciences, Sir Henry Dale Fellowships (run in partnership with the Wellcome Trust) covering the biomedical sciences and the Dorothy Hodgkin Fellowships for scientists who require a flexible working pattern due to personal circumstances such as parenting or caring responsibilities or health issues (opens Autumn 2016).

 

Thank you in advance for helping us support excellence in science whilst increasing participation from all under-represented groups across all areas of science, technology, engineering, mathematics and medicine.
