Research Councils UK (RCUK) has published its Statement of Expectations for Research Fellowships and Future Research Leaders, which sets out common principles for the support of all Research Council-funded fellowships and future research leaders.
The Research Councils want to ensure that the individuals funded as fellows or future research leaders are equipped and supported to be adaptable and flexible in an increasingly complex global research environment.
The document details what is expected of research organisations, including providing fellows with a named mentor, and the individual researchers, including a commitment to playing an active role in the wider research area through peer review. It also sets out what is expected of the research councils.
If you are interested in applying for an RCUK fellowship then please contact the RKEO team in the first instance.
The scheme will support outstanding early career researchers to carry out excellent research and to develop all aspects of their research and knowledge exchange skills. Awards will last a maximum of three years and will be worth up to £215,000 each. Deadline is 15.09.11
