For early career researchers spanning plant and crop science and those in aligned areas such as pathology, entomology, bioinformatics, engineering and robotics
NIAB wishes to support outstanding early career researchers in applications for independent research fellowship such as:
- BBSRC David Phillips Fellowships
- BBSRC Future Leader Fellowships
- NERC Independent Research Fellowships
- Royal Society University Research Fellowships.
The NIAB Faculty welcomes interest from early career researchers spanning plant and crop science, as well as those working in aligned areas such as pathology, entomology, bioinformatics, engineering and robotics, to continue to build NIAB’s programme of research and development. NIAB is not funding the research fellowships but supporting candidates with proposal submission and hosting if successful.
The NIAB Faculty groups researchers working within the NIAB Group - NIAB (Cambridge), NIAB CUF (Cambridge) and NIAB EMR (Kent).
NIAB is an independent research organisation that provides science-based research to support develop and promote agriculture and horticulture. It is the UK’s fastest growing crop science organisation, having trebled in size over the past decade through a strategic programme of investment, merger and acquisition. NIAB is at the forefront of the application of genetics, physiology, soil science, precision agronomy and data science to improve the yield, efficiency and resilience of crop production.
