Want to work abroad for 2 years in the U.K.? Every year the Newton International Fellowships Scheme sponsors 40 of the very best early-career post-doctoral researchers from all over the world to enable them to work at UK research institutions. These post-doctoral fellowships are for researchers in all disciplines covered by The British Academy and Royal Society – physical, natural and social sciences, and the humanities.
The fellowship program even has a fantastic alumni scheme that provides further funding for Newton Fellows for up to 10 years for follow-on activities, to enable links with U.K.-based researchers to be maintained and developed. This is expected to facilitate, in the longer term, improved access to international centres of excellence for UK-based researchers.
The current round for applications is open until April 10, 2013. Results will be announced at the end of October. Read here for more information.
