The Newton International Fellowships has been launched to enable researchers to work for two years at a UK institution with the aim of fostering long-term international collaborations.
The Scheme aims to attract the most promising early career postdoctoral researchers from overseas in the fields of natural sciences, physical sciences, social sciences and humanities. The Newton International Fellowships Scheme is run by The British Academy and the Royal Society. Please kindly be informed that the Scheme is NOT under Newton Fund.
