Review and continued support
EPSRC fellows holding a Postdoctoral award may, towards the end of their fellowship, apply for continued support through the Early Career award. Applicants will be expected to have used their initial fellowship to advance their career sufficiently to be able to demonstrate the attributes expected of those at the Early Career stage. Such applications will be assessed in open competition with other Early Career applications, taking appropriate account of programme research priorities which will have emerged from EPSRC’s Shaping Capability goal from its 2011-15 Delivery Plan.
In exceptional circumstances it may be possible for successful fellows to request additional travel resources during their fellowship that allow them to build new networks; however applicants are encouraged to request at the time of application all necessary resources.
