Schemes for Engineers in Research and Development

RAEng Research Fellowships

The Stage 1 assessment process is now complete and all applicants have been contacted. The deadline for submission of the Stage 2 Application is now closed.

The RAEng Research Fellowships are designed to promote excellence in engineering. They provide support for high-quality engineers and encourage them to develop successful academic research careers.

Applications are welcomed from outstanding engineering researchers who are about to finish their PhD or have up to three years Post-Doctoral research experience. The scheme provides funding for five years to encourage the best researchers to remain in the academic engineering sector. In addition to the direct financial support, the scheme offers:

  • freedom to concentrate on basic research in any field of engineering

  • time to establish a track record in the field

  • the services of a mentor (a Fellow of The Academy) to offer advice and to facilitate the formation of industrial links

  • restrictions of your teaching and administrative duties

For further information, please refer to our guidance notes:

If you work in a 'Research Grants Office' or equivalent, and so aid your colleagues in applying to such schemes, please email research info to be added to a mailing list so we can update you directly when core rules change and new Calls for applications are announced.
