Imperial's prestigious Imperial College Research Fellowships sustain the brightest and best early career researchers from across the world, providing a level of commitment and support that is rare from a UK university.

Imperial College Research Fellows will receive a fellowship which includes:

  • a competitive salary,
  • research and travel expenses of up to £45,000,
  • personal mentoring support from a senior Imperial academic,
  • focussed careers support, training courses, and development opportunities from the College's Postdoc Development Centre,
  • the chance to take full responsibility for setting and directing your own research agenda.

This support gives you the freedom to focus on your research and career trajectory, with no obligatory teaching or administration. For an idea of what the Fellowship can help you to achieve, please see the achievements of our past and current cohorts.
