Industry Fellowship Application Process

Interested in making an application for an Industry Fellowship? This page gives you all the information you need to know.

Award duration

The award duration can be three months to one year, (or pro rata, i.e., it could be held at 50% part-time for up to 24 months, enabling fellows to maintain links with their employing institution). It covers the salary costs for a researcher.

Types of application

The Faraday Institution invites:

  • Joint applications – where a university researcher or group and an industrial partner have agreed to work on a defined problem – are accepted twice per year for internal review.
  • Single applications – where an industrial research group is in search of an academic partner OR vice versa – are accepted on a rolling basis. If selected, the Faraday Institution will assist in finding the right industrial or academic match.

Joint applications should be submitted before the 1st of April and the 1st of October each year.

Single applications can be made at any point during the year and will be reviewed for suitability. Where the single application is deemed suitable the Faraday Institution will work with the applicant to find a suitable partner. Award decisions will be made by a panel consisting of members of the Faraday Institution and independent reviewers.

Applicants must have a right to remain in the UK, hold a PhD (or be of equivalent standing in their profession) and hold a permanent post in either a UK university or UK-based company.
