Call for applications to Newton International Fellowships

A new round of Newton International Fellowships - an initiative to fund 
research collaborations and improve links between UK and overseas 
researchers - has now opened. The Newton International Fellowships are 
funded by the British Academy and the Royal Society and aim to attract the 
most promising early-career post-doctoral researchers from overseas in the 
fields of the humanities, the natural, physical and social sciences. The 
Fellowships enable researchers to work for two years at a UK research 
institution with the aim of fostering long-term international 
collaborations. Newton Fellows will receive an allowance of 24,000 to 
cover subsistence and up to 8,000 to cover research expenses in each year 
of the Fellowship. A one-off relocation allowance of up to 2,000 is also 
available. In addition, Newton Fellows may be eligible for follow-up 
funding of up to 6,000 per annum for up to 10 years following completion 
of the Fellowship to support activities which will help build long-term 
links with the UK. The scheme is open to post-doctoral (and equivalent) 
early-career researchers working outside the UK who do not hold UK 
citizenship. Applications are to be made via the Royal Society?s online 
application system which is available at 
register through the online booking system by Friday 22 November. The 
closing date for applications is Monday 10 March 2014.
