Imperial College London Junior Research FellowshipsThe Department of Computing at Imperial College London invites applicants for Junior Research Fellowships (JRFs). These highly competitive fellowships target early career researchers holding PhD degrees and a demonstrated track record of world-class accomplishment. The fellowships are designed to provide freedom to focus on research: there are no obligatory teaching or administrative duties.
Typically, the successful candidate will have already obtained significant experience in either academia or industry, although exceptional recent PhDs will also be considered. Please note that the JRF scheme is a competition across the whole of Imperial College London.
Application to the scheme via the Department of Computing is a two-step process in which the applicant pool is first narrowed by a departmental review committee and then the top applicants are entered into the College-wide competition. At the first step of the competition the applicant must provide a complete CV and a 200-word (maximum) description of a proposed research project.
If you are interested in applying for a JRF and your research falls broadly into the areas of distributed systems, software engineering, operating systems, and/or networking, please send your first-step application (CV and project description) in PDF format to:
Please include "Imperial JRF" in the subject line of your message, and only send a CV and project description; all other application materials will be requested as needed at a later date.
Deadline for departmental review: 10 October 2011
Deadline for full application: 31 October 2011

Imperial College London is delighted to invite applications for its Junior Research Fellowship scheme, to give outstanding early-career researchers an opportunity to develop independent research programmes. In 2012, we will be awarding up to 20 fellowships. Each one offers up to three years funding (stipend in the range £31,500 to £37,050 and up to £10,000 per annum research expenses). Fellowships are designed to provide freedom to focus on research: there are no obligatory teaching or administrative duties. Applicants will be encouraged to apply for additional sources of funding to allow them to strengthen their research programme.
Proposals will be accepted in all research areas active at Imperial College London. Multidisciplinary projects are welcomed.
Applicants will need to identify an Imperial College academic staff member to act as their sponsor who will provide laboratory space, facilities and mentorship for the tenure of the fellowship. Candidates may be from the UK or abroad and will be normally expected to have up to 4 years post-doctoral experience at the time of application. Proposals will be judged primarily on the basis of scientific merit, track record of the applicant and potential for development of an independent research programme.
