Independent Research Fellowships Conference

We are hosting an Independent Research Fellowship Conference on 22 January 2018.

If you hold, or wish to apply for Independent Research Fellowships, such as the BBSRC David Phillips Research Fellowship, or a Royal Society Research Fellowship, you are invited to apply. Shortlisted candidates will be invited to attend.


If selected, you will be able to present a talk about your proposed area of research and discuss your proposals, the development of your group, and your future career plans in depth with senior John Innes Centre scientists.

After the conference, our panel will select and mentor outstanding candidates in writing Fellowship applications and/or offer the opportunity to move existing Fellowships to the John Innes Centre.

There is a well-established career path for our Independent Fellows, who will be considered for transfer onto tenure-track 3 years into their fellowship, and if transferred, for tenure at 5 years. Considerable additional resources will be provided to Fellows by the Centre.

We may also offer a John Innes Foundation Chris J Leaver Fellowship to a suitable candidate.
