Applications are now open for the Royal Society Research Professorship: a prestigious senior funding scheme that provides up to ten years support to world-class scientists releasing them from teaching and administration to enable them to focus on their research. More information can be found at: http://royalsociety.org/grants/schemes/research-professorship/.
Applicants can be of any nationality, and applications are particularly welcomed from scientists currently resident outside the UK.
Applicants should ensure that they meet all the eligibility requirements, which are explained in the scheme notes (PDF)<http://royalsociety.org/uploadedFiles/Royal_Society_Content/grants/schemes/Research-Professorship.pdf>.
Value and tenure
The scheme provides salary costs, a one-off start-up grant and research expenses. Appointments are usually made for 10 years.
After this period, all responsibility for the post, financial and otherwise, will pass to the host organisation alone. A representative of the host organisation will be asked to agree in principle to make this commitment, when an application is submitted to the Society.
