Research Funding Opportunities: School of Science and Technology
This post provides information on the latest funding opportunities for your School. You will still be able to conduct your own searches via Grantfinder in the usual way or contact the RSB Office firstname.lastname@example.org and we will assist you.
- 25 April 2014: London Mathematical Society, 150th Anniversary Postdoctoral Mobility Grants The London Mathematical Society will award grants of up to £9,200 to mathematicians of excellent promise. The purpose of the grants is to support a period of study and research in mathematics between three and six months in the academic year 2014-15 at one or more institutions other than the holder’s home institution. They are intended to support promising researchers during the transitional period between having submitted their thesis and the start of their first post-doctoral employment.
The value of the grant will be calculated at £1,200 per month plus a travel allowance of up to £2,000. The maximum grant will be £9,200.
These grants have been established by the LMS to mark its 150th anniversary. They will be awarded for the academic years 2014-15 and 2015-16
- 1 May 2014: NERC, Advanced Training Short Courses Grants for advanced, short environmental science training initiatives that fall within NERC’s remit and prioritise NERC-funded PhD students or early career researchers
- 14 May 2014: Leverhulme Trust, Philip Leverhulme Prizes – recognise the achievement of early career researchers whose work has already attracted international recognition and whose future career is exceptionally promising. The prize scheme makes up to thirty awards of £100,000 a year, across a range of academic disciplines. For the 2014 competition the selected subject areas are: Biological Sciences; History; Law; Mathematics and Statistics; Philosophy and Theology; Sociology and Social Policy. The disciplines selected are intentionally broad, and nominations will be considered irrespective of a nominee’s departmental affiliation.
- 10 June 2014: Royal Society, India-UK Scientific Seminar Funding for three day scientific meetings to bring together groups of mid-career scientists from India and the UKfor the purpose of scientific discussion; to promote collaboration and knowledge transfer by encouraging interaction within the wider research community; and to develop new and enduring partnerships
- 16 July 2014: BBSRC, Flexible Interchange Programme (FLIP) for the Bioscience Community – FLexible Interchange Programme (FLIP) supports the movement of people from one environment to a different one to exchange knowledge/technology/skills, developing bioscience research/researchers and addressing our strategic priorities. FLIP awards provide flexible opportunities for individuals (“the interchangers”) moving between different organisations, disciplines and sectors at all stages in their career beyond the PhD (or equivalent).
NB If you are interested in applying to this Programme, please contact the RSB Office in the first instance.
- 31 July 2014: Isaac Newton Institute for Mathematical Science, Research programmes in mathematical sciences The Institute now invites proposals for 1-, 4- and 6-month research programmes in any branch of the mathematical sciences
- 28 August 2014: EPSRC, International research in Security (IRIS) Proposals are invited from UK academics for projects that will support Fellows from India, Israel or Japan conducting cyber security research, and forming associated collaborative links, within the UK. Proposals in any area in relation to cyber security, including social, economic and mathematical sciences, are invited.
