Support for rising research stars

The ICRF competition is now closed.  The 2023 call (for fellowships starting between August and December 2024) is expected to launch in late-June 2023, with an application deadline of Monday 21 August 2023.  The application and assessment processes are likely to follow those from 2022 – applicants are invited to review these details for information by visiting the ‘Information for Applicants’ tab (see left) but must ensure that they use the correct 2023 materials when submitting an application.


While full details of the 2023 call are still under development, we are able to release advance notice of the dates of the Postdoc and Fellows Development Centre (PFDC) ICRF briefings. These are designed to help candidates prepare their applications. Interested candidates are invited to register and attend.


These sessions will be delivered by Dr Ines Perpetuo, Consultant for Postdocs and Fellows Development, and will have a current ICRF fellow presentation as well.


This year the PFDC is delivering a Women and a BAME-specific session. The session content will be similar, so there is no need to sign up for more than one - dates and sign up links below.
