New funding available to support research links with European institutions

Funded by a generous philanthropic gift from Warwick alumnus Rui Fernandes, the Institute of Advanced Study has launched a new fellowship scheme to support the development of long-term links with European research institutes.

The Fernandes Fellowships will allow Warwick academics to host a researcher for one or more visits, up to a total of three months, with the aim of creating long-term research collaborations. The fellow will receive a stipend of £2000 per month together with travel costs of up to £1,000 and support for research and other activities of up to £3,000.

The fellowships are aimed at researchers who are relatively early in their research career (first academic post, tenure track position or independent research fellow) with 25 fellowships to be completed before December 2021.

Applications submitted by 30/11/18 will be reviewed at the next panel meeting in December and applications can be made now for a fellowship to be held at any time in the next two years.

The Fernandes Fellowships are open to researchers working in all subject areas, however applicants working in the following research fields are particularly welcomed;

  • Human disease, particularly reproductive health, antimicrobial resistance, cancer and ageing
  • Data, artificial intelligence and associated ethics
  • Economics, management, behavioural science and governance
  • Energy, sustainability, and circular economy
  • Analytical technologies for healthcare, life science and the environment
