A new round of Newton International Fellowships has now opened. It is an initiative funded by the British Academy and the Royal Society to support research collaborations and improve links between UK and overseas researchers. The fellowships are aimed at promising early-career post-doctoral researchers from overseas in the fields of the humanities, the natural, physical and social sciences.
They enable researchers to work for two years at a UK research institution with a subsistence allowance of £24,000 and up to £8,000 per year to cover research expenses. A one-off relocation allowance of up to £2,000 is also available. Newton Fellows may also be eligible for follow-up funding for up to 10 years.
The closing date for applications is Monday 10 March 2014. Further details are available from the Newton International Fellowships website: www.newtonfellowships.org
