About the INT/College Junior Research Fellowship Programme
NB: This information has been updated following the Trustees' triennial strategic review July 2019
The Trustees of the Isaac Newton Trust are delighted to offer support for up to two stipendiary Junior Research Fellowships (JRFs) per annum in the Arts, Humanities and Social Sciences to enable Colleges for whom the full cost of a JRF would be prohibitive, but who may have access to partial funding, to bring together the funds needed to recruit for and elect a Junior Research Fellow.
NEW: The Trustees have also agreed to offer one or two awards per annum to enable eligible colleges to appoint to non-stipendiary fellowships post-doctoral researchers holding fully funded fellowships in the sciences.
- Newton Trust JRF awards are made to Colleges, and are not made directly to the Fellow subsequently selected by the College;
- the Isaac Newton Trust does not accept applications directly from prospective JRFs;
- the Trust plays no part in the selection of Fellows; the selection is made by the College advertising the post.
What the Trust provides:
- eligible Colleges whose applications for stipendiary awards are successful will be offered a flat-rate contribution of £15,000 per annum towards a Junior Research Fellowship, for up to three years;
- Colleges with non-standard alumni bases may apply for a discretionary additional grant of £5,000 per annum;
- stipendiary fellowships should be advertised in the range of subjects falling within the general area of the Arts, Humanities and Social Sciences.
- for non-stipendiary fellowships in sciences, the Trust offers a flat rate of £3,000 per annum towards the costs associated with a fellowship.
