Applications are invited for Imperial College Research Fellowships. These aim to give outstanding early-career researchers an opportunity to develop independent research programmes. We will be awarding up to 20 fellowships, to start between August and December 2018. Fellowships are designed to provide freedom to focus on research: there are no obligatory teaching or administrative duties. Applicants will be encouraged to apply for additional sources of funding to allow them to strengthen their research programme.

Proposals will be accepted in all research areas active at Imperial College London. Multidisciplinary projects are welcomed as are collaborations with The Francis Crick Institute In addition, AstraZeneca and Imperial will be awarding up to 2 fellowships, each offering up to three years funding with a minimum of 1 year in residence at one of the AstraZeneca research centres. For more information, contact Dr Vjera Magdalenic-Moussavi at

Applicants will need to identify an Imperial academic staff member to act as their sponsor who will provide laboratory space, facilities and mentorship for the tenure of the fellowship.

Candidates should have a PhD; however in exceptional cases, applicants applying to the Faculty of Engineering and Imperial College Business School are permitted to apply before the submission of the PhD but any offer of funding will be dependent on the PhD being awarded before the start of the fellowship. For applications to the Faculties of Natural Sciences and Medicine, a PhD must have been submitted before an application is made and the PhD must be awarded before the start of the fellowship.

Applicants should have no more than four years postdoctoral research experience in an academic environment.

Proposals will be judged primarily on the basis of scientific merit, track record of the applicant and potential for development of an independent research programme.

Awards are for up to four years duration.  

Closing date: Tuesday 29 August 2017 (11.59pm GMT)

Applications should be made by submitting the completed application form and recruitment monitoring form (available from the College website to by Tuesday 29 August 2017 (11.59pm GMT).  Applicants must also ensure that one electronic copy of a confidential letter of support / reference from the applicant's current institution is sent to before Tuesday 29 August 2017 (11.59pm GMT).
