The Academy of Medical Sciences is pleased to be working with the Royal Society and British Academy to offer Newton International Fellowships, available through the Government Newton Fund which is part of the UK’s official development assistance. The Newton Fund is an initiative that aims to develop the long-term sustainable growth and welfare of the partner country through building research and innovation capacity.
This scheme provides early career international researchers with an opportunity to build links and undertake a research project for an extended period with leading researchers in the UK. The skills and knowledge gained should lead to changes in the wellbeing of communities and increased economic benefits.
Newton will fund, for up to two consecutive years, early career post-doctoral researchers from partner countries to carry out a research project with a host within some of the UK’s first class research environments. The primary aims of the International Fellowships are to:
Support the development and training of postdoctoral researchers at an early stage of their career from any country outside the UK, by providing an opportunity to work at a UK research institution for two years.
Ensure the best postdoctoral researchers across all relevant disciplines from around the world are supported in the UK.
Foster long-term relations between Newton International Fellows and the UK research base.
