The Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC) invite proposals for their New Investigator Grants. New Investigator Grants form one element of support for early career researchers and the scheme is specifically aimed at supporting those looking to make the transition to an independent researcher through managing their first major research project. These grants replace their previous Future Research Leaders scheme.
The call is open to high-quality candidates from anywhere in the world who have a maximum of four years’ postdoctoral experience and the support of an eligible UK research organisation. Grants ranging from £100,000 to £300,000 full Economic Cost (fEC) can be awarded.
Proposals are welcomed across the full disciplinary range of the social sciences and at the interface with the wider sciences, however the social sciences must represent at least 50 per cent of the research focus and effort.
There are no fixed deadlines for this call and proposals can be submitted at any time.
