Overview:

The Ernest Rutherford Fellowships will enable early career researchers with clear leadership potential to establish a strong, independent research programme. They will encourage talented researchers in UK universities to remain in the country and at the same time attract outstanding overseas researchers to the UK.

Ernest Rutherford Fellowships are intended for early career researchers who do not have an academic position.

Applicants who have applied for the - UK Research and Innovation Future Leaders Fellowships can also apply for an Ernest Rutherford Fellowship but cannot hold two fellowships which fund their working time simultaneously.

Each Fellowship will last for five years, with 10 being offered in the 2020/21 round. The aim is to support future scientific leaders to establish a strong, independent research programme.
