Microsoft Research/Royal Academy of Engineering Chairs and Fellowships

Microsoft Research, in partnership with the Royal Academy of Engineering provides support to a number of leading researchers in the UK, through full time research chairs and senior fellowships.

Research Chairs

The Royal Academy of Engineering Research Chairs are full-time professorial appointments, in engineering-related subjects. The Chair holder is expected to develop and lead a prestigious research group, the members of which will be encouraged to publish the results of their research as widely as possible to gain international recognition both for themselves and for the group in which they are based.

Senior Research Fellowships

The Royal Academy of Engineering Senior Research Fellowships are aimed at outstanding researchers from all branches of engineering who are about to finish their PhD or have up to three years Post-Doctoral research experience. The scheme provides funding for five years to encourage the best researchers to remain in the university engineering sector. In addition to the direct financial support, the scheme offers freedom to concentrate on basic research in any field of engineering, time to establish a track record in the field, the services of a mentor (a Fellow of The Academy) to offer advice and to facilitate industrial links as the research progresses and restricted teaching and administrative duties.
