IoP launches new Research Excellence Travel Fellowships
Posted on 12/01/2012
The Institute of Psychiatry at King’s College London has launched a new Research Excellence Travel Fellowship scheme as part of its strategy towards developing outstanding early career researchers in the area of mental health and neurosciences.
The awards will provide up to £5k to enable exceptional young scientists from around the world to travel to the IoP. Candidates will work alongside world-class academic mentors to develop research proposals and explore their career aspirations in greater depth. The research proposal the candidates will develop will allow them to seek prestigious personal fellowships from key research funding bodies in order to undertake their research.
Professor Til Wykes, Vice Dean of Research at the IoP says: 'The strength of the Institute of Psychiatry lies not only in the outstanding quality of research we undertake, but also in the variety of people we have working here. I hope this exciting new Fellowship will attract even more international researchers to the Institute.'
The Institute of Psychiatry is Europe's largest centre for research and post-graduate education in psychiatry, psychology, basic and clinical neuroscience. The Institute is Europe’s topmost and the world’s second most cited institution carrying out psychiatry and psychology research with 12 of the most highly cited scientists in the field working here.
King’s College London is one of the top 30 universities in the world. Through university partnerships, joint research and teaching, international staff and students as well as Global Institutes and Centres around the world, King’s College London continues to expand its range of global activities.
