The Natural Environment Research Council (NERC) in the UK is accepting applications for Independent Research Fellowships. These are five-year awards to support outstanding environmental scientists and enable them to develop their research, start to build a research group, and become internationally recognised.

In order to identify future science leaders, the assessment process will concentrate on applicants' research potential, with track record assessed in a way that is appropriate to career stage. Applicants will be expected to:

  • demonstrate their research vision and philosophy and outline ways in which their research could be developed over the five year fellowship
  • explain how they will contribute to the international research area and interact with the leading international groups in their field
  • explain how they will enable the potential economic or societal benefits of their research to be realised

The application deadline is October 3, 2017. For more information, please visit NERC.
