British Academy logo

Deadline: 9 March 2016

The Newton International Fellowships Scheme was established in 2008 to select the very best early stage postdoctoral researchers from all over the world and enable them to work at UK research institutions for a period of two years.

The Newton International Fellowships programme is available to eligible applicants from any country outside the UK.

From 2015 additional Fellowships are supported through the Newton Fund specifically for applicants from Newton Fund partner countries; this new initiative aims to develop long-term sustainable growth and welfare of partner countries through building research and innovation capacity, and forms part of the UK’s Official Development Assistance commitment. Newton Fund countries include Brazil, China, India, Mexico, South Africa, and Turkey.

The Newton International Fellowships Scheme covers researchers in the following disciplines: physical sciences, natural sciences, social sciences, and the humanities. The scheme also covers clinical and patient orientated research, for applicants from China and India during the current round.
