Duties and responsibilities

Imperial College Research Fellowship Scheme gives outstanding early-career researchers an opportunity to develop independent research programmes. We will be awarding up to 20 fellowships, to start between August and December 2019. Each one offers four years' funding (stipend in the range of £36,800 to £41,940 per annum (2017/18 figures), plus a generous contribution to research expenses). Fellowships are designed to provide freedom to focus on research: there are no obligatory teaching or administrative duties. Applicants will be encouraged to apply for additional sources of funding to allow them to strengthen their research programme.

Proposals will be considered in all research areas active at Imperial College London. Multidisciplinary projects are welcomed, as are collaborations with The Francis Crick Institute http://www.crick.ac.uk/  In addition, AstraZeneca and Imperial will be awarding up to 2 fellowships, each with a minimum of 1 year in residence at one of the AstraZeneca research centres. See here for more information.

 

Essential requirements

Applicants will need to identify an Imperial academic staff member to act as their sponsor who will provide laboratory space, facilities and mentorship for the tenure of the fellowship. Candidates may be from the UK or abroad and will be normally expected to have no more than 4 years post-doctoral research experience in an academic environment at the time of application. It is anticipated that candidates would be at the early stages of their research career and be able to demonstrate their future potential to establish research independence. Proposals will be judged primarily on the basis of scientific merit, track record of the applicant and potential for development of an independent research programme.

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.
