The Newton International Fellowships Scheme

Overview

The Newton International Fellowships Scheme is an initiative of the UK’s leading academies - the British Academy, The Royal Academy of Engineering, and the Royal Society. The Scheme has been established to select the very best early stage post-doctoral researchers from all over the world and enable them to work at UK research institutions for a period of two years. The Scheme covers researchers in all disciplines covered by the three academies – natural and social sciences, engineering and humanities.

Eligibility

  • Applicants should have completed a PhD and have held no more than 1 or 2 postdoctoral positions, or equivalent experience at a comparable level.
  • Applicants in the final stages of their PhD will be accepted, provided that the PhD will be completed before the start date of the Fellowship. Confirmation of award of the PhD will be required before any Fellowship award is confirmed.
  • Applicants should be working outside the UK and should not hold UK citizenship at the time of application. Researchers already based in the UK are not eligible to apply.
  • Contact between the Sponsor and Applicant prior to the application is essential. This contact should lead to a clearly defined and mutually-beneficial research project proposal. Please note that the three implementing academies will not be able to assist in locating a UK Sponsor.
  • Applicants must be competent in oral and written English. The UK Sponsor must confirm their competency on the application form.
  • Applications from individuals who have not studied or worked in the UK previously are encouraged as the scheme aims to establish new links between the applicant and the UK.
  • If the applicant has completed their PhD in the UK the added benefit of continued collaboration should be clearly stated.
