Environmental Mineralogy Group Early Career Bursary Scheme - Min Soc UK/GB

A funding opportunity of up to £500 is available for Early Career Researchers (postdoctoral, fixed-term research fellow or fixed-term academic appointment) in the disciplines of environmental, applied, and bio mineralogy to facilitate ‘seed corn' research, develop ‘pump-priming' ideas, support career development, and commercialization of research into industry. Awards are expected to lead to publication/collaboration/research funding applications.

Applicants must hold a PhD and be working at a higher education or research institution in the UK or Republic of Ireland as a postdoctoral researcher, fixed term research fellow or hold a fixed term academic appointment. The applicant's research post must extend beyond the end date of the proposed research.

The bursary may be used for:
  • Access to, and use of, scientific instruments and services
  • Purchase of necessary scientific equipment and consumables
  • Travel and subsistence for the above and/or to facilitate collaborations, but not conference attendance
Awards will be made twice a year with individual awards limited to a maximum of £500. The closing dates for receipt of applications are 1st March and 1st September each year. Applications must be received not less than eight weeks in advance of the proposed research, and in time for one of the deadlines above.
