The ICG welcomes candidates interested in applying for research fellowships to be held in Portsmouth. A variety of
potential fellowships are available, including Ernest Rutherford Fellowships (STFC), Royal Society University Research Fellowships, Marie Curie (EU) fellowships, and possibly national fellowships from the candidate's country of origin.
Expressions of interest for fellowships should be addressed to an ICG staff member with a connection to the proposed research;
CV's and research proposals should be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org as soon as possible, but preferably no later than 31 August.
The Ernest Rutherford Fellowships are five year fellowships funded by the STFC, replacing their Advanced Fellowships scheme.
They are open to candidates of any nationality, but each institution is strictly limited in their total number of applicants. The ICG
will review potential applicants' CVs and research proposals to determine the candidates it will be supporting. The STFC deadline is
27 September 2012, and our internal deadline for CV's and preliminary research proposals is 31 August 2012.
Royal Society University Research Fellowships are initially five year fellowships open to citizens of the European Economic Area or Switzerland. The closing deadline is 13 September 2012. The Royal Society also offers the Dorothy Hodgkin Fellowship (maximum four years) for candidates with a need for flexible support, and Newton International Fellowships (two years) for early stage international (non-UK) researchers.
The Marie Curie (FP7) scheme includes Career Integration Grants (CIG) that are designed to support researchers in the first steps of their European research career and to attain lasting professional integration in the European Research Area. By providing researchers with a substantial research budget, the action is intended to improve considerably their prospects for long term integration, thus contributing to the success of their research career. The deadline is 18 September 2012.
Further Marie Curie actions include the Marie Curie Intra-European Fellowships (IEF) and International Incoming Fellowships. Deadline is 16 August.
