Unique and exciting opportunity - Cranfield 75th Anniversary Fellowship Scheme – call for applications

As part of the celebrations to mark 75 years of impact, Cranfield University is launching a global academic talent search to recruit some of the world’s best up and coming research staff to its newly launched 75th Anniversary Research Fellowship scheme.

Best of the best wanted – Cranfield launches global academic talent search

The Cranfield 75th Anniversary Research Fellowship scheme is looking to provide a platform for some of the world’s most gifted researchers to make breakthroughs in their fields and provide a springboard for their future academic career. It will give talented early career researchers an opportunity to conduct innovative research working with some of the most respected and impactful research centres globally.

Professor Tom Stephenson, Pro-Vice-Chancellor for Research and Innovation at Cranfield University, said “we want to give some of the world’s most talented up and coming researchers the space and opportunity to thrive. These fellowships will allow the successful applicants to conduct their own transformative research without the pressures that many academics face.”

Cranfield turns 75 next year, and we will be celebrating as a community.

Successful applicants will receive three years of funding to conduct their own independent research and will be given access to bespoke, enhanced training and career development support.

We believe the breadth of opportunity offered by the fellowship is unique – research proposals can be aligned with any of Cranfield’s major themes:

In addition, applicants have three routes to access one of our fellowships:

  • Apply for full funding through the Cranfield 75th Anniversary Fellowship scheme
  • Apply having already identified an industrial sponsor to part fund your research;
  • Apply having identified part fellowship funding from a public sector fellowship scheme

The scheme will start in September 2020, to mark the University’s upcoming 75th anniversary, and will run until 2027, supporting up to 30 early career fellowship positions at Cranfield.

Announcing the scheme, Professor Tom Stephenson, Pro-Vice-Chancellor for Research and Innovation at Cranfield University, said: “If you are an early career academic, and believe that you are on the verge of greatness in your research, but just need the time and space to develop it further, then we want to hear from you.
