A number of UK and International schemes provide funding for early career researchers with excellent track records to achieve independence:-
- Royal Society University Research Fellowships
- Royal Society Dorothy Hodgkin Fellowships
- Wellcome Trust Fellowships
- NERC Fellowships
- BBSRC David Phillips Fellowships
- ERC Starting Grant
There are also various Fellowship Schemes which bridge the gap between post-doctoral and Fellowships. For example, Henry Wellcome Postdoctoral Research Fellowships, EU Marie Curie Incoming International Fellowships, EU Marie Curie Intra-European Fellowships, HFSP Fellowships, Royal Society Newton Fellowships, JSPS Fellowships, Royal Commission of 1851 Fellowships and Daphne Jackson Fellowships. There are also several Junior Research Fellowships (JRF) advertised by Oxford colleges.
