Fellowships of up to £12,600 to Israel and UK PhD students, post-docs and other qualified investigators at higher education or research institutions for academic collaboration in scientific research. Priority research areas are water science, agri science, anti-microbial resistance, neuroscience, cyber research, and nano science. Funding is intended for a researcher from Israel to do a fellowship in the UK or vice versa.
Preference will be given for new collaborations although individuals involved in existing cooperation will be considered.
The scheme supports mobility of research scientists in Britain and Israel. It invests in early stage collaboration between researchers, including PhD and postdoctoral students. In the long run this research will tackle some of the most pressing global challenges and establish Britain and Israel as leading partners in the priority areas set above.
The objectives of the Fellowship Scheme are:
- To deepen connections between the UK and Israel and promote joint UK-Israeli scientific excellence
- To offer an opportunity for early career researchers.
- To seed / cement partnerships
The UK-Israel Science Lectureships are available in the following priority themes:
- Nanoscience: research related to nano technologies and materials, including (but not limited to) medicine, toxicology, particles, electronics, metrology, molecular and green technology.
- Neuroscience: research related to neurosciences, including (but not limited to) physiology, anatomy, pharmacology, cognitive, computational, engineering, imaging and physics.
- Agri science: research related to agri science including (but not limited to) biotechnology, agronomy, soil-sciences, genetics and chemistry.
- Water science: research related to water science including (but not limited to) irrigation, pollutants, hydrology, purification, groundwater, sanitation, wastewater treatment and climate change adaptation as it pertains to water resources.
- Cyber: research related to cyber technologies (not policy), including (but not limited to) computer science, engineering, algorithms, information security, and cryptography.
- Antimicrobial resistance (AMR): research related to AMR (not policy) including (but not limited to) biology, medicine, engineering, genomics and computational methods.
The Scheme will enable scientists in both countries to undertake medium-term visits to further their research experience establish / strengthen research links and develop / enhance scientific collaborations.
The UK-Israel Fellowships will support research visits by British and Israeli researchers to laboratories in the UK and Israel. Applicants can apply for visits for one to six months in duration, which may be split into a number of visits. The aim of these visits will be to enable the visiting fellows to learn new techniques and research methods that are not available in their home laboratories, and to facilitate collaboration between the home and host research groups.
Grantees will be required to participate in the full range of activities proposed in the visit itinerary.
Grantees may be asked to:
- Attend Science and Innovation Network and/or British Council events
- Participate in peer reviews, where relevant
- Promote the Science and Innovation Network and/or British Council and be available for press and media work
- Contribute to reporting on their visit to the UK and/or Israel
Fellowship awards are intended to support the travel and subsistence of eligible individuals.
