Visiting Professorial Fellowships 2009-2010 at the University of London

Posted in Funding opportunities, Research Fellowships by Pippa on November 18, 2008

The S.T. Lee Professorial Fellowship
A generous endowment by Dr S.T. Lee, of Singapore, has made possible the creation of this Fellowship, open to applicants of professorial or equivalent status for the purpose of supporting research in London in any field relevant to the work of one or more of the School’s Institutes. The Fellowship may be held for a period of up to 6 consecutive months between September and June of any academic year. (A longer tenure may be possible, but will not attract any financial support beyond that available for the first 6 months. Applications for periods significantly shorter than 6 months are unlikely to be successful).The endowment also provides for the delivery of the annual S.T. Lee lecture on a theme of the Fellow’s choice.

New Round of Newton Fellowships

Posted in Funding opportunities, Research Fellowships by Pippa on October 30, 2008

A new round of Newton Fellowships – an initiative to fund research collaborations and improve links between UK and overseas researchers – has opened. 

The Newton International Fellowships are funded by the British Academy, the Royal Academy of Engineering and the Royal Society and aim to attract the most promising post-doctoral researchers working overseas in the fields of humanities, engineering, natural and social sciences. The Fellowships enable researchers to work for two years with a UK research institution, thus establishing long-term international collaborations.

The funding will be distributed in the form of 50 research fellowships, awarded annually, each providing support of up to £100,000 for a two year placement.  The scheme is open to post-doctoral (and equivalent) early-career researchers working outside the UK who do not hold UK citizenship.

The closing date for applications is Monday, 12 January 2009.

Further details are available from the Newton International Fellowships website: www.newtonfellowships.org  or call 00 44 (0)20 7451 2559
