Isaac Newton Trust


About the CTO Research Leave Programme - 2020 ROUND CLOSED

NB:  This information has been updated following the Trustees' triennial strategic review July 2019

The Trustees of the Isaac Newton Trust are delighted to confirm their support for high-quality research among established CTOs in the University. 

The Isaac Newton Trust invites applications from Colleges for awards to support short-term junior teaching appointments so that established CTOs may take an extended period of leave to undertake a significant research project:

Up to a maximum of four awards will be offered this year, to cover replacement teaching as follows:

  • £25,000 for a nine-month replacement appointment, or
  • £30,000 for twelve-months.

Awards are pro-rated for CTOs working on a part-time basis
