Hi, Today I would like to inform my fellow researchers about an opportunity to learn about applying for Early Career Fellowship programme. Richard Aldrich the director of Institute of Advanced Study (IAS) will run a ‘How to apply –hints and tips session’ on the 7th June at 10.30 am in the Research Exchange.
The IAS runs a highly successful Early Careers Fellowship programme. This is designed to Warwick doctoral candidates in the transition phase between their doctoral and postdoctoral careers. Students funded through this scheme are expected to use the Fellowship to advance the development of their research careers - by writing research publications, conference papers, job applications, and postdoctoral fellowship/grant proposals - while engaging with the interdisciplinary activities of Warwick’s Institute of Advanced Study (IAS).
The Fellowships are available only on a part-time basis, and can be held in conjunction with part time (up to 50%) employment within or outside the University. Fellows will be expected to participate in a number of activities at the IAS and Warwick Graduate School, and thus must be resident within a reasonable distance of Warwick during the tenure of their award.
Fellows will be expected to run at least one research-orientated workshop for current Warwick PhDs during the tenure of their award. Help with organisation and promotion is available from the Graduate School Programme (GSP) and/or IAS.“Writing Lives”is a recent highly successful example of such a workshop held in May 2012.
Fellows will also be expected to participate in the Academic careers and Employment programme (ACE), convened on Thursday afternoon by the IAS Director in conjunction with the Fellows. Each Fellow will maintain an ePortfolio, and contribute to the IAS’s web-based resources for early career researchers.
The award is explicitly targeted at PhD (or other research-based doctoral award) candidates at the University of Warwick whose thesis is under examination. It is not intended to provide financial support to students who have not yet submitted their thesis. Candidates will be expected to apply prior to submission, indicating an expected submission date.
IAS Early Career Fellowship Competition 2012-13: for doctoral students submitting between 1 April 2012 and 30 September 2012.
The competition for Early Career Fellows to start in October 2012 will be open for applications in June 2012.
