Academies announce fellowships for international researchers

The British Academy and Royal Society have announced the latest recipients of the Newton International Fellowships, awarded to researchers from overseas who pursue postdoctoral fellowships in the UK.

The fellowships, now in their sixth year, provide each recipient with about £100,000 for two years of work in the UK. They also include follow-on funding of up to £6,000 a year for up to 10 years, which is intended to help maintain the international ties formed during the fellowships. The fellowships are awarded to researchers working in the natural sciences, humanities, engineering, or social sciences. 

This year, there are 36 recipients from 20 countries, including Israel, Japan, India and the United States. Their projects cover topics such as judicial activism in India, democracy and religion in Bhutan, neutrino oscillations and electron microscopy.
