Following recommendations from a scoping project, a bespoke programme of support is in place for independent research fellows at Imperial. An independent research fellow is a member of research staff who has successfully applied for funding to include their salary.
The programme is currently being adapted to ensure the high-quality support provided continuously evolves to meet the needs of this community. Please keep an eye out for updates relating to the programme on our webpages and via the monthly PFDC newsletter.
