Call for applications: Royal Academy of Engineering Schemes - Research Fellowships and Leverhulme

*_Royal Academy of Engineering Research Fellowships_*

Applications are welcomed from outstanding researchers from all branches of engineering who are about to finish their PhD or have up to three years Post-Doctoral research experience. The scheme provides funding for five years to encourage the best researchers to remain in the academic engineering sector. In addition to the direct financial support, the scheme offers successful candidates the freedom to concentrate on basic research by the release from teaching and administrative duties, time to establish a track record in the field
internationally, and a mentor (a Fellow of the Academy) to offer support & advice during the course of the Fellowship.

Please note that applications must be received by *5pm on* *Monday, 12th November 2012.*

*_Royal Academy of Engineering/Leverhulme Trust Senior Research Fellowships_*

This scheme enables the appointment of 7 Senior Research Fellows in UK universities in any discipline of engineering. The Fellowships allow academics to be freed from their administrative and teaching responsibilities in order to concentrate on full-time research for periods from one academic term up to one year. Mid-career engineering academics are thus enabled to rejuvenate their research career or make
significant headway in ongoing work. The Fellow's employing institution will be reimbursed for the gross salary costs of a junior academic at the minimum point on the lectureship scale as paid by the Host University. The replacement will be expected to undertake all of the Fellow's teaching and administrative responsibilities for the duration of the Fellowship.

Please note that applications must be received by *5pm on* *Monday, 19th November 2012.*

I would be most grateful if you would pass this on to colleagues as you feel appropriate.
