The David Phillips Fellowship (DPF) will provide support for researchers wishing to establish their first independent research group.
11 May 2017
Awards are for five years, and include personal salary and a significant research support grant to enable fellows to establish their own independent research group. It is expected that up to five fellowships will be awarded, each at a value of up to £1,000,000 (80% of the full economic cost). The total costs (100% full economic cost) requested may be up to £1,250,000.
In addition to this investment, it is also expected that a substantial demonstration of support for the fellow be made by the host Research Organisation (e.g. in terms of access to facilities and equipment, training, research costs etc.). Applications are welcome from candidates seeking flexible working arrangements (e.g. part-time).
