Interested in supporting excellence and innovation in UK science?

The Royal Society is the independent scientific academy of the UK dedicated to promoting excellence in science. The organisation runs a range of grant schemes, supporting early career and senior scientists pursuing both discovery led and applied research, investing in industry and innovation schemes, working with partners overseas to facilitate international collaborations and strengthening research capacity in developing countries. In addition, the Society provides a range of activities to support the development of the next generation of research leaders including opportunities for training, mentoring, support and networking

We are now looking for outstanding and highly motivated candidates with a science background, excellent organisational and time management skills and strong attention to detail to join our Grants team, with a focus on our early career researcher programmes.

Working as part of a team, successful candidates will be responsible for delivering the day to day management and administration of the Newton International Fellowship scheme.
