COVID-19:  Advice for Leverhulme Early Career Fellows


The Isaac Newton Trust provides partial salary support for post-doctoral researchers who have secured Early Career Fellowships in a number of prestigious competitions.

The Isaac Newton Trust is proud to be supporting Fellows from the following University and College Programmes:

Leverhulme Early Career Fellowships (up to 20 awards per year)

Humboldt Stiftung Feodor Lynen Early Career Fellowships (about 2 per year)

Kavli Fellowships in Cosmology & Astrophysics Programme

Max-Cam Fellowships (2018 cohort)

INT/College Junior Research Fellowships (about 2 per year)


Note:  With effect from 1 October 2019, offers of  6-month extensions of Swiss National Science Foundation Mobility Fellowships will no longer be made by the Trust as part of its Fellowships programme.  However, host PIs who wish to apply for support for an extension of a SNSF Fellowship might consider applying for this through the INT Research Grant competition.
