L’Oréal UK & Ireland and the UK and Irish National Commissions for UNESCO, with the support of the Royal Society have partnered together to provide a dedicated UK & Ireland For Women in Science Fellowship programme for women scientists at post-doctoral level to enable and/or facilitate promising scientific research in the life and physical sciences.
This year, for the first time, the fellowships with be open to Computer Scientists. To be eligible, applicants must be female postdoctoral level researchers who have already been awarded their research doctorate, have no more than 10 years’ active full-time equivalent postdoctoral experience and must not currently hold, or have ever held, a permanent academic post.
Funding of up to £15,000 is available to support successful applicants for a maximum of 12 months.
