Scheme has been established to select the very best early stage post-doctoral researchers from all over the world and enable them to work at UK research institutions for a period of two years. The Scheme covers researchers in all disciplines covered by the two academies – physical, natural and social sciences, and the humanities. Objectives of the Newton International Fellowships Scheme • To ensure the UK engages with the best post-doctoral researchers, across all disciplines of physical, natural and social sciences, and the humanities, from around the world. • To provide an opportunity for post-doctoral researchers at an early career stage from any country outside the UK to work at a UK research institution for two years. • To foster long-term relations between Newton Fellows and the UK research base through the establishment of an alumni programme for former Fellows of this Scheme. The alumni programme will include the possible provision of further funding for Newton Fellows for up to 10 years for follow-on activities, to enable links with UK based researchers to be maintained and developed. This is expected to facilitate, in the longer term, improved access to international centres of excellence for UK-based researchers. Closing date: 10 April 2013* *applicants are advised to submit their application for approval to the UK host organisation approver at least 5 working days before the round deadline i.e. by 3 April 201
