NERC – Independent Research Fellowships

The NERC Independent Research Fellowship (IRF) Scheme is designed to develop scientific leadership among the most promising early-career environmental scientists, by giving all fellows five years’ support, which will allow them sufficient time to develop their research programmes and to gain international recognition.

As part of this scheme, NERC will expand its fellowship networking and training activities, working with host institutions, to support the development of future leaders in NERC science.

The next closing date for NERC Independent Research Fellowships is 3 October 2017. Applicants can begin submission of their proposals on the Je-S System from 6 June 2017; prior to this date, the call will not appear on the Je-S system.

Panel dates for the IRF 2017 meetings will be announced soon.
