In 2012, NERC Council decided to introduce a new NERC Independent Research Fellowship scheme (IRF) that will replace the previous schemes (Postdoctoral Fellowships and Advanced Fellowships). These five-year awards will 'support outstanding environmental scientists and enable them to develop their research, start to build a research group and become internationally recognised'. Further information about the Independent Research Fellowship, including deadlines and application processes can be found at http://www.nerc.ac.uk/funding/available/fellowships/
The latest (April 2013) edition of the NERC Research Grants and Fellowships Handbook (Grants awarded on Full Economic Cost basis) is now available.
