Royal Society - University Research Fellowships

This scheme is for outstanding scientists who are in the early stages of their research career and have the potential to become leaders in their field. These long term fellowships provide the opportunity and freedom to build an independent research career in the UK or Republic of Ireland and pursue cutting-edge scientific research.

The funder deadline is 7th September 2021 and more information can be found here: University Research Fellowship 

Note: Following the Wellcome Trust’s new approach to fellowships and subsequent closure of the Sir Henry Dale Fellowship scheme, the Society is pleased to announce that applications in the biomedical sciences remit will now be eligible for the University Research Fellowship scheme. For a full list of subject areas eligible for the next round of University Research Fellowships, please see our guidance page
