Three Year Junior Research Fellowships at Imperial College

Applications are open for Imperial's second round of Junior Research Fellowships, to give the world's top early-career researchers freedom to focus on research, by providing a competitive salary and laboratory support costs; there will be no teaching or administrative duties associated with the appointments.

The three-year Fellowships also aim to help scientists make the difficult leap from post-doctoral researcher to lecturer.

In 2010, Imperial College will be awarding up to 20 fellowships. Proposals will be accepted in all Imperial's core disciplines and can be held in any Faculty (Engineering, Medicine, Natural Sciences), the Business School and the Centre for the History of Science, Technology and Medicine. Interdisciplinary projects are welcomed.

Applicants may be from the UK or abroad and will be normally expected to have up to 4 years post-doctoral experience at the time of application. Applicants need to identify an Imperial academic staff member to act as their sponsor and provide laboratory space, facilities and mentorship for the tenure of the fellowship. Proposals will be judged primarily on the basis of scientific merit, track record of the applicant and potential for development of an independent research programme.
