The RAEng Research Fellowships scheme is open annually to outstanding early-career researchers to support them to become future research leaders in engineering.
The scheme's objectives are to:
- support the best early-career researchers in establishing their independence and international reputation
- provide long-term support enabling the pursuit of an ambitious programme of engineering research and impact
- develop ambassadors for the Academy and advocates for STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) disciplines
The Academy welcomes applications from early-career researchers worldwide who have been awarded their PhD in the last four years. The scheme provides funding for five years. Each application is capped at a maximum contribution from the Academy of £500,000 over the five-year period, at 80% of full economic costs.
Dr Chloe Turner, Research Development Manager in Research and Innovation Services (RIS) will talk through both the RAEng Research Fellowship scheme, as well as what’s on offer as part of the new internal process, together with how to apply.
