Isaac Newton Trust: Early Career Researchers

The Isaac Newton Trust is proud to be able to provide partial salary support for post-doctoral researchers who have secured Early Career Fellowships in a number of prestigious competitions. Foremost among these awards are:

In addition to providing the necessary financial support, the Trust aims to provide a sense of belonging to a wider group of Cambridge researchers through an association of 'Isaac Newton Fellows'.

The Isaac Newton Trust also prioritises early career researchers through its own Research Grants, including research programmes jointly funded with the Schools of the University, and by facilitating College teaching opportunities through time-limited Teaching Fellowships.
