RAENG Research Fellowships and Engineering for Development Research Fellowships (deadline: 24th September

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.

 

Royal Academy of EngineeringApplications are welcomed from outstanding early-career researchers who are about to finish their PhD or have been awarded their PhD in the last four years. The scheme provides funding for five years to encourage the best researchers to remain in the academic engineering sector. All applicants will need to have identified and be actively supported by a UK higher education host institution.

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, enabling you to dedicate your time to research.

Internal deadlines may apply. Please check recurrent restricted calls on the Research Strategy Office website.
