CfA: WIRL-COFUND | Warwick Interdisciplinary Research Leadership Programme


The second call for applicants is now open until 30th November 2017.

Up to eight fellowships will be available starting in September 2018.

The date for determining the eligibility for the transnational mobility rule will be 7th May 2018. Applicants must not have resided or carried out their main activity (work/study etc.) in the UK for more than 12 months in the three years prior that date.

The IAS WIRL-COFUND project has received funding the European Union's Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under the Marie Skłodowska Curie Actions COFUND scheme (grant agreement number 713548) to develop the next generation of research leaders. WIRL-COFUND will build on the successful training model developed in the IAS fellowship programmes to bring together early career researchers from around the world into an interdisciplinary research environment. WIRL-COFUND fellows will be expected to undertake research in an area that is linked to one of the Warwick Global Research Priorities.

Each fellow will participate in the IAS Academic Careers and Leadership (Accolade) Programme, an extensive training programme aimed at building an independent research profile and establishing a research career.

The programme will recruit 30 fellows from around the world over a five year period, and the first cohort started in September 2017. Calls will be open to researchers who meet the Marie Skłodowska Curie Actions definition of an Experienced Researcher and conform to the mobility requirements of the COFUND scheme (no more than 12 months spent in the UK in the previous three years).
