Support for early career researchers on projects badly affected by COVID-19

The support of early career researchers through the COVID crisis is one of the INT’s current priorities, enabled by a generous intervention from Trinity College. The Trustees will view sympathetically applications for the support of postdocs whose work or employment has been severely impacted by COVID.

If your research project is coming to an end and has been severely disrupted by COVID restrictions or illness, and if you are employing a postdoc on the project who would be unemployed at the current end date, you might apply for an Emergency Grant, equivalent to the time lost, in the normal INT Research Grant competition, which runs each Term.  Please make clear on the coversheet that the application is occasioned by COVID and frame your application to concentrate as much on the career support of the individual researcher as on the wish to complete the project.
