About the scheme
Funded by the UK Department for Science, Innovation and Technology (DSIT), over the last 35 years, the Academy’s Research Chairs and Senior Research Fellowships scheme has successfully supported over 200 academic appointments and enhanced internationally renowned centres of excellence.
Awardees are expected to:
- establish or enhance a world leading engineering research group
- deliver 'use-inspired' research that meets the needs of their industrial sponsors
- disseminate the outcomes of their research for appropriate academic use
- become a self-sustaining research group by the end of the award (by securing substantial external grant income).
Special call: DSTL/Research Chair and Senior Research Fellow in Information Fusion
Open in tandem with our usual Research Chairs and Senior Research Fellowships call, the Defence Science and Technology Laboratory(DSTL) which is part of the UK Ministry of Defence (MOD), also invites proposals for a Royal Academy of Engineering Research Chairs and Senior Research Fellowship to undertake research that will advance the fundamental theory of information fusion in decentralized sensor networks.
This special round will accept applications in “Architectures for information fusion in sensor networks for military intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance (ISR)”.
The Royal Academy of Engineering is committed to diversity and inclusion and welcomes applications from all under-represented groups across engineering. It is the Academy's policy to ensure that no applicant is disadvantaged or receives less favourable treatment because of age, disability, gender reassignment, marriage and civil partnership, pregnancy and maternity, race, religion or belief, sex or sexual orientation. We would like to support you to achieve a balance between your personal and work demands. We are happy to discuss individual requirements and consider part time and other flexible working arrangements.
