The UK Intelligence Community postdoctoral research fellowships are now open for applications – they will close on 1 April.

The Research Fellowships are funded by the Government Office for Science and managed by the Royal Academy of Engineering to promote unclassified basic research in areas of interest to the intelligence, security and defence communities.

Members of the Intelligence Community (IC) identify research topics and Postdocs work locally with University Research Advisors to develop and submit research proposals that align with the topics.

The Research Fellowships are aimed at early career researchers from all branches of science and engineering who have up to four years postdoctoral experience.  Each application is capped at a maximum grant of £200,000 over a 2-year period.  The Royal Academy of Engineering and the Government Office for Science are committed to diversity and welcome applications from women and other groups who are currently underrepresented across science and engineering.  Applications details can be found here.
