Royal Society Fellowships
The Royal Society offers a number of prestigious Fellowships under three different programmes:
- Royal Society University Research Fellowships, which are tenable for 5 years and renewable in two installments up to 10 years. These are mainly for outstanding researchers at an advanced postdoctoral level.
- Dorothy Hodgkin Fellowships, mainly designed for people who need flexible working patterns due to personal commitments.
- Newton International Fellowships, 2-year fellowships for non-UK outstanding researchers at an early stage of their career.
European Commission Fellowships
The European Union offers a number of prestigious Fellowships under the Horizon 2020 programme, specifically:
- ERC Starting grants, 5-year positions for researcher leaders with 2-7 years of postdoctoral experience who wish to start or consolidate their research.
- ERC Consolidator grants, 5-year positions for established researchers with 7-12 years of postdoctoral experience.
- Marie Skłodowska-Curie individual fellowships, 2-year positions for junior researchers.
The EPSRC processes fellowship applications at all levels on a rolling basis and in priority areas which change regularly. In particular, for early career researchers, they offer:
- Postdoctoral Fellowships, aimed at those who are at the very beginning of their career.
- Early Career Fellowships, aimed at those with a track record of delivering independent research and require stable funding to develop their academic career.
More information on these funding opportunities can be found at the link: EPSRC Fellowships.

- Royal Commission for the Exhibition of 1851 Fellowships, 3-year fellowships, for early career researchers.
