NERC Fellowship scheme

The Natural Environment Research Council Fellowship scheme provides opportunities for outstanding environmental scientists to devote their time to:

  • research
  • develop their research careers
  • produce work of international importance

    Around thirty fellowships are available to start around October 2010.

    Applicants can only submit one application to NERC

    NERC Fellowships are open to any nationality.

    The NERC Fellowship levels correspond to different stages in a typical research career, and there are no fixed age limits for the scheme.

    Full consideration will be given to applicants returning to science following a career break or where the candidate has come late to a research career.

    Applicants should not have a permanent academic position (or the equivalent in institutions other than universities).

    Applications are especially welcome from candidates who are not yet established within the higher education system or who are intending to use the Fellowship as a means of re-establishing themselves in the United Kingdom following a period overseas.

    Applications for Postdoctoral Research Fellowships will be accepted from PhD students, but awards may not start until NERC has received written confirmation of the outcome of the applicant's PhD viva.

    Deadline: 3rd November
