The AHRC and ESRC are hosting two events to showcase funded fellowship opportunities for PhD students and early career researchers, through our International Placement Scheme (IPS), at these world-leading international research institutions:
IPS fellowships run for two to six months and include: a travel and living stipend; unparalleled access to collections, facilities, curators and other scholars; opportunities to present work, network and forge international contacts.
The showcases will include presentations from past IPS fellows; AHRC staff will advise on eligibility for the scheme and give application guidance; speakers and IPS alumni will be available at the networking lunch to discuss the scheme.
The events are primarily aimed at eligible candidates (opens in a new window), but relevant RO staff such as BGP/DTP Coordinators, Heads of School/Department, Research Managers, PhD Supervisors and AHRC-funded Principal Investigators with project students/RA’s are also welcome.
Showcase dates are:
Friday 15th November 2013, 11.00 – 14.00 at University of Westminster, Regent Street, London
Monday 18th November 2013, 11.00 – 14.00 at University of Manchester, Sackville St Campus, Manchester
The 2014/15 IPS competition opens on 19th November 2013. The application deadline is 15th January 2014. For more information please see the IPS webpages.
