This is a full time, fully funded 12-month fellowship, with a research allowance. It is for those with a permanent academic position and who are ‘normally within no more than 15 years from the award of their doctorate.’
The aim of the scheme is to allow  successful applicants to obtain time freed from normal teaching and  administrative commitments. The time bought by the scheme should be devoted to  the completion of a major piece of research, and the Academy will also look for  evidence of a clear commitment to a strategy of public engagement with and  communication of the results of the research during the period of the  Fellowship.  

To access the full guidelines you need to log into the eGap system.

This is an annual scheme. If awarded then the fellowship would start in Sept/Oct 2018.
