Newton Fellowship Scheme (2y postdoctoral positions in the UK)

The Newton International Fellowships Scheme is delivered by The British Academy 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 two academies -- physical, natural and social sciences, and the humanities.

Fellowships are tenable for a continuous period of two years. Newton Fellows must be based in the UK at the UK host organisation full time for the two year period. You should be aware that you need to have agreed a research project with your proposed UK Sponsor before you apply, and that an application is made jointly by you and your proposed UK Sponsor. All applicants must be working and be based outside of the UK at the time of application.

The current round opens for applications on 31 January 2012. The closing date for the round of applications is 16 April 2012. Results will be announced at the end of October 2012. There are approximately 40 Newton Fellowships available in this round.
