Processing applicants' data

Who will process my personal information?

Personal data are processed by the staff of the Isaac Newton Trust https://www.newtontrust.cam.ac.uk/about/contact

What personal information will be processed?

The Isaac Newton Trust will keep a record of the very limited set of personal details that you, or the person applying on your behalf, will have provided on the Trust’s application form, and in any supporting documents requested by the Trust as part of the application, plus any additional details provided by any academic referees of your application.

This information will normally be limited to the applicant’s: name; University Department/Faculty and/or College as appropriate; email address(es); and educational/professional profile (c.v.) as relevant to the application.

However, in the case of grants sought for a research group, details as set out above of any named co-applicant, or any named postdoctoral worker to be supported by the grant, will be collected as part of the application and stored.

Academic references collected in the process of managing your application are seen only by the Trustees and their elected academic advisory panels. They are not released to candidates or to other third parties (however, brief unattributed, extracts may be paraphrased as feedback to unsuccessful candidates.)

We will maintain records about the management of any grant made by the Trust arising from your application.

Your personal information is created, stored and transmitted securely in a variety of paper and electronic formats, including a database. Access to your personal information is limited to the staff of the Isaac Newton, who have a legitimate interest in it for the purpose of carrying out their contractual duties and making awards.
