Independent Research Fellowships
At the John Innes Centre, we are actively encouraging Independent Research Fellows to undertake their fellowships at JIC, where they can benefit from our outstanding facilities.
We are inviting applications from outstanding researchers who either hold, or wish to apply for Independent Research Fellowships, such as the BBSRC David Phillips Research Fellowship, or a Royal Society Research Fellowship, to attend a conference at the John Innes Centre on 27th April 2015.
At this conference, you will be able to present a talk about your proposed area of research and discuss your proposals, the development of your group, and your future career plans in depth with senior JIC scientists.
After the conference we will select and mentor outstanding candidates in writing Fellowship applications and/or offer the opportunity to move existing Fellowships to JIC.
There is a well-established career path for JIC Independent Fellows, who will be considered for transfer onto tenure-track 3 years into their fellowship, and if transferred, for tenure at 5 years. Considerable additional resources will be provided to Fellows by the Centre.
Applicants must have:
- A relevant PhD, and experience at post-doctoral level
- An excellent publication record, or other proof of research success
- A coherent and well-developed research plan
How to Apply
Please send the following to firstname.lastname@example.org
- Your curriculum vitae
- A 2 page summary of your research plan
- Three references in support of your application (these can be sent by email)
The closing date for applications is Friday 13th March 2015.
