Do you have 3 years or less post-doctoral research experience and want to conduct innovative research of your own instigation?
Closing 12 noon GMT on 6 February 2020
1851 Research Fellowships are intended to give early career scientists or engineers of exceptional promise the opportunity to conduct a research project of their own instigation; an ultimate objective is to contribute to the knowledge base required for a healthy and innovative national culture. Around eight awards are made each year.
The 1851 Commissioners seek to widen the pool of candidates by encouraging researchers in the core subjects of Civil, Mechanical and Aeronautical Engineering to submit applications in these disciplines which address the primary infrastructure needs of modern society: the buildings we live and work in, transportation of many forms and the machinery and plant which supply our energy needs. Successful applications in these areas will be designated ‘1851 Brunel Fellowships’ and applications will be assessed separately from those in the Science subjects to reflect the different demands and expectations of core Engineering subjects, particularly in respect of the possible complexity of the final outcomes.
Fellowships are held from 1 October in the year of award (or such date in 2020 as agreed with the fellow), and offers cannot be deferred to later years.
