Independent Research Fellowships - NERC, UK

---

>> PLEASE note that this call is now closed but it will likely be available again in 2018. We are posting it on this web page to inform researchers about this potential opportunity. Please check the following NERC web page for updates: http://www.nerc.ac.uk/funding/available/fellowships/irf/

---

The NERC Independent Research Fellowship (IRF) Scheme is designed to develop scientific leadership among the most promising early-career environmental scientists, by giving all fellows five years' support, which will allow them sufficient time to develop their research programmes and to gain international recognition.

As part of this scheme, NERC will expand its fellowship networking and training activities, working with host institutions, to support the development of future leaders in NERC science.

Application and assessment process

In order to identify future science leaders, the assessment process will concentrate on applicants' research potential, with track record assessed in a way that is appropriate to career stage. Applicants will be expected to: (1) demonstrate their research vision and philosophy and outline ways in which their research could be developed over the five year fellowship; (2) explain how they will contribute to the international research area and interact with the leading international groups in their field; (3) explain how they will enable the potential economic or societal benefits of their research to be realised.

In order to demonstrate a commitment to the development of NERC IRFs, the Head of Department of the host institution will be required to demonstrate:

(1) the availability of structured institutional support, including infrastructure and facilities, funds to support research, and access to PhD students; (2) support for personal development of the fellow, including mentoring, appropriate review, and training courses.

Postdoctoral Fellowships, FWO - Odysseus programme, Belgium

The FWO Odysseus programme supports outstanding researchers who have built up a career outside Flanders. The programme provides start-up funding in order to develop a research group within a Flemish university or to set up a research line and become progressively more involved in the Flemish research establishment.

 Profile and conditions:

  • The subsidy is spread over 5 years and includes the salary cost for supporting staff, equipment and bench fees. This breakdown is purely indicative, because the researcher under this programme is entitled to freely dispose of the financial resources.   Salary costs and remunerations of the Odysseus beneficiaries are borne by the host institution. Otherwise the same guidelines as for FWO projects apply.
  • The subsidy is used for two types of start-up funding:

Odysseus Group I:

    • for researchers who are internationally recognised as pioneers in their field and who already have a position at a foreign university
    • research funding: €400,000 to €1,500,000/year (€2,000,000 to €7,500,000 for the 5-year period)

Odysseus Group II

    • Researchers who have at least 3 years' post-doctoral experience abroad and whose work has convinced leading colleagues in the field that they have potential to develop a leading international position.
    • Research funding: €100,000 and €200,000/year (€500,000 to €1,000,000 for the 5-year period)
  • Only the Flemish universities can, potentially in cooperation, nominate candidates at the FWO.

To be considered an eligible candidate:

  • you have been employed by a foreign institution for at least one year before the date of the application.
  • you have for at least three years been affiliated to a foreign institution in the last five years ('foreign' here meaning a non-belgian institute).
  • you meet the criteria of excellence, as demonstrated in the CV and bibliography.you submit a research plan at the relevant universities. This plan includes a budget with an indicative breakdown of planned expenses over a period of five years. This research plan is approved by the university or universities and is consistent with the research policy. 
  • In case of a nomination by two or more universities, they should formulate a common proposal.
