Applications open for FLAIR Fellowships aimed at talented African early career researchers

Future Leaders – African Independent Researchers (FLAIR) Fellowships are for talented African early career researchers who have the potential to become leaders in their field. These fellowships provide the opportunity to build an independent research career in a sub-Saharan African institution and to undertake cutting-edge scientific research that will address global challenges facing developing countries.

Each FLAIR Fellowship will be for two years initially and will offer up to £150,000 per year, alongside a programme of support to develop fellows as independent research leaders including training and mentoring, and opportunities to network both regionally and with the UK and to develop international collaborations.

This scheme is open to applications and will close at 3.00pm UK time on Wednesday 20 June 2018.

This is a partnership between the African Academy of Sciences (AAS) and The Royal Society, supported by the Global Challenges Research Fund (GCRF).
