Facilitating world-class research
The Research Software Engineer (RSE) Fellowship scheme aims to recognise the contribution of RSEs who are driving the development of high quality research software and demonstrating leadership in embedding the vital role of software in disciplinary and institutional research cultures.
Oxford can submit a total of 2 applications to the outline proposal phase.
Up to £4.5m is available from EPSRC to support approximately four to eight RSE fellows in the EPSRC remit, and up to £0.6m of funding is available from STFC to support one RSE fellow in the STFC remit. Awards are for a duration of up to five years.
Applicants are expected to hold a PhD by the start date of the fellowship or have equivalent experience. There are no eligibility rules based on postdoctoral experience or whether the applicant holds a permanent academic position.
Fellowships can be held part or full time with a minimum of 0.5 FTE commitment.
The proposed work of the Fellowship must be within the scope of this call and within EPSRC or STFC’s remit. For the University-wide internal bids process, outline proposals will be assessed against the following two criteria:
Departments are not capped at the number of submissions to the internal selection process, but candidates must discuss and clear point 4 with their departments before submitting an internal application.
Candidates should upload the following documentation as a single PDF on IRAMS by noon on Wednesday 22 July 2020:
Detailed guidelines on this documentation can be found on the EPSRC website.
Proposals will be considered by a cross-divisional panel of academics. The decision of the panel is final.
For queries on the internal coordinated process, contact Kathleen Dolan.
