Embedded Researcher scheme: Phase 2 – Embedded researchers

In this second phase of the UK Climate Resilience Embedded Researcher scheme, UK Research & Innovation (UKRI) is inviting proposals from UK-based academic researchers to apply for placements at non-academic host organisations.

Funding will be awarded as a research grant to the researcher and profiled across 12 months from 1 September 2020; however, individual start dates at the host organisation, duration and working pattern of the placement should be flexible and negotiated between the researcher and host as appropriate to each opportunity.

Each researcher can apply for up to £70K (at 80% FEC). Up to five placements will be delivered through this first round; UKRI expect to run another round for up to three further placements in 2021-2022.  Twenty-nine opportunities are available at host organisations in this call.

Summaries of host organisation opportunities are found in Annex A of the call document. Full details (including contact information for hosts) can be found in the accompanying Annex B: UK Climate Resilience Embedded Researcher host organisation opportunities document.

Potential applicants must contact host organisations by no later than 11 May 2020, with hosts informing their preferred researcher candidate by 18 May 2020.

The closing date for applications is now 16.00 on 10 June 2020.

Please note: the above deadlines replace previously published dates.
