The Government Office for Science offers UK Intelligence Community (IC) Postdoctoral Research Fellowships to outstanding early career science or engineering researchers. These Fellowships (duration 2 years) are designed to promote unclassified basic research in areas of interest to the intelligence, security and defence communities. The Centre for Protection of National Infrastructure, Department for Transport, Defence Science and Technology Laboratory, Home Office, and the National Cyber Security Centre are among the organisations represented in the UK Intelligence Community for the Postdoctoral Research Fellowships.
One round of applications is held annually. Members of the IC identify research topics and the Research Fellows work locally with University Research Advisors to develop and submit research proposals that align with the topics here.
Applications for this scheme are now open and will close on 19 April 2021, at 4pm
