To be eligible:

  • Applicant should hold a permanent position at a UK university, at lecturer level or above.
  • Applicant must be teaching an engineering discipline at undergraduate or postgraduate level.
  • Applicants must demonstrate sufficient experience and academic status to merit the title ‘Senior’ Research Fellow.
  • Applicants must be able to demonstrate a significant administrative workload, which prevents them dedicating as much time to research as they would like, and that they therefore merit being relieved of their teaching and administrative duties.
  • Research projects should be in any engineering discipline. Engineering is defined in its broadest sense, encompassing a wide range of diverse fields including computer science and materials. If you are unsure if your project is in an engineering area, please contact the Programme Manager to check if you are eligible to apply.
  • Awardees will be required to devote all of their time to the fellowship as this is a full-time award.
  • Any applications that are incomplete or do not adhere to the guidelines may be rejected.
