Imperial College Research Fellowships – applications invited

Imperial College London has launched its exciting fellowship scheme offering outstanding early career researchers the opportunity to develop independent research programmes.

Closing Date: 22 August 22 (23:59 BST)
Engaging a Wide Talent Pool
We are looking for people from all backgrounds and from all over the world, as we recognise that diversity is key to successful creativity. We show our dedication to equality and valuing diversity by being a Stonewall Diversity Champion and an Athena Silver SWAN Award winner. Recruiting the best talent means accessing the widest possible network of that talent. We strive to ensure the diversity of our candidates, and we reflect this ethos in the way we promote, recruit, and select people for the ICRF programme. We believe that diversity not only benefits Imperial but that it positively helps the sector to better represent the communities that we serve
Selection Process
You will need to identify an Imperial academic staff member to act as your sponsor who will provide laboratory space, facilities and mentorship. Candidates may be from the UK or abroad and will normally be expected to have no more than 4 years post-doctoral research experience at the time of application.  It is anticipated that you would be at the early stages of your research career and be able to demonstrate the potential to establish research independence. Proposals will be considered in all research areas active within participating departments at Imperial, and are expected to contribute to the development of Imperial’s Academic Strategy and cross-cutting sub-themes. Fellowships that are co-sponsored with external partners may be possible.  For more information, see https://www.imperial.ac.uk/research-fellowships/icrf/.
A Great Place to Progress Your Career
In terms of work-life balance, we offer a generous holiday leave allowance, enhanced maternity provision at 18 weeks full-pay, and advice and support on childcare and eldercare is available through My Family Care. To that end we encourage applications from people from a diverse range of backgrounds.

The College is a proud signatory to the San-Francisco Declaration on Research Assessment (DORA), which means that in hiring and promotion decisions, we evaluate applicants on the quality of their work, not the journal impact factor where it is published. For more information, see https://www.imperial.ac.uk/research-and-innovation/about-imperial-research/research-evaluation/
 The College believes that the use of animals in research is vital to improve human and animal health and welfare. Animals may only be used in research programmes where their use is shown to be necessary for developing new treatments and making medical advances. Imperial is committed to ensuring that, in cases where this research is deemed essential, all animals in the College’s care are treated with full respect, and that all staff involved with this work show due consideration at every level.
