The Academy of Medical Sciences is pleased to announce the new round of the Newton International Fellowships is now open!
We are accepting applications from researchers in Brazil, China, India, Mexico and South Africa. These fellowships support early career, post-doctoral international researchers (with no more than 7 years’ active full time postdoctoral experience), who would like to spend two consecutive years undertaking research at a host university or research institution in the UK.
The fellowship provides:
· £24,000 tax free each year for two years
· Up to £8,000 for research expenses
· A one-off payment of £2,000 for relocation expenses
Deadline: Tuesday 27 March 2018 (15:00 GMT)
This scheme is delivered in partnership with the Royal Society and the British Academy. These fellowships are available through the UK Government Newton Fund, which builds scientific and innovation partnerships with partner countries to support their economic development and social welfare, and to develop their research and innovation capacity for long-term sustainable growth.
