ISBE 2019 workshop – UKRI Future Research Leaders Fellowship programme

1pm – 2pm, Thursday, November the 14th
Northumbrian Suite, Crowne Plaza Newcastle


Facilitator: Professor Julia Rouse, Head of the Sylvia Pankhurst Gender Research Centre, Manchester Metropolitan University

Professor Julia Rouse has recently been part of the panel that assesses the UKRI Future Research Leaders Fellowship programme (

UKRI is the new inter-disciplinary research council and these fellowships are significant opportunities of around £1m each to support Early- and Mid-Career researchers to lead 4-7 year projects. UKRI has a £900m budget for the FLF programme.

In this informal session, Julia will share her understanding of the scheme and what it takes to be competitive. The session may be helpful to anyone within 1-8 years of completing their PhD (or even slightly longer if they have had career breaks) and to ISBE members supporting colleagues in their career development.
