Supporting Early-career Researchers
The ICAM Kathleen Lonsdale Research Fellowship offers a first step to build an independent research career for exceptional scientists and engineers who have a current need for flexible or special support.
ICAM Kathleen Lonsdale Research Fellows are chosen based on the scientific merit of their research and how it fits ICAM’s vision to enable the effective application of advanced materials for the transition to net zero.
Successful ICAM Kathleen Lonsdale Research Fellows who are about to start their first year are eligible to apply for an ICAM Research Grant of circa £100k, as well as being encouraged and supported to apply for external research funding.
November 2021 was the close of the application window for a new Kathleen Lonsdale Research Fellow, the ICAM Directors were delighted with the amount of strong proposals and would like to thank everyone who applied. They have now been passed to the next stage of the review process, with more news to come ahead of the eventual appointment in 2022.
