The highly competitive  Anne McLaren Fellowships target outstanding early career female researchers in science, technology, engineering and medicine, who wish to establish an academic career in the UK.  Successful candidates will be associated with an academic unit at the University of Nottingham.  Prospective candidates are advised to discuss their proposed application and research with the head of the academic unit where the Fellowship would be hosted, after which expressions of interest should be submitted following the guidelines available at the link above.  Deadline 1700 on 28 October 2013.

Each fellowship offers:

·       Three years independent funding, normally starting October 2014, to conduct research while based at the University of Nottingham

·       The linking of the Fellowship to an indefinite academic post, subject to performance against a high quality threshold;

·       The opportunity to apply for additional funding for research costs, up to £25,000 per annum;

·       Additional childcare costs of up to £5,000 per annum where appropriate;

·       Participation in a mentoring scheme and career development programme.

Eligibility: Candidates must have submitted a PhD (viva does not need to have taken place) and have had no more than four years full-time postdoctoral experience by 1 October 2013. Career breaks such as maternity leave, EU national service and Voluntary Service Overseas can be discounted but teaching experience and/or time spent in industry since the award of a PhD should be included in the total amount of postdoctoral experience.  Part-time appointments would be considered on a pro-rata basis.  Individuals who have been promised or already have a permanent position are considered to have achieved the aims of the scheme already and will not be eligible. The scheme is designed to offer support and flexibility for female scholars.
