The Royal Academy of Engineering has announced the next round of Research Fellowships for Early Career Researchers. Fellowships include a contribution of up to £625,000 over 5 years.

The scheme, run by the Royal Academy of Engineering and funded by the Department of Science, Innovation and Technology (DSIT), is open to early career researchers who have received their PhD in the last four years.

In addition to the direct financial support, the scheme benefits include:

  • Mentoring support from an Academy Fellow to offer advice on research and career development.
  • Reduction of teaching and administrative duties to dedicate time to research.
  • Training and additional funding opportunities.
  • Networking opportunities with other Research Fellows and Academy Fellows.
  • An opportunity to establish a strong research track record which will improve the chances of securing additional funding and expanding their own research teams.
  • Be part of the RAEng Awardee Excellence Community.1
