Lord Kelvin Adam Smith (LKAS)Research Fellowships

Our LKAS Leadership Fellowship Scheme supports the recruitment of researchers early in their careers to become leaders in their field.
Packages of up to £100k are available to support early-career researchers with externally funded fellowships (including ERC Starting Grants) in pursuing their careers at the University of Glasgow.
The aim of the funding is to:
•Cover set-up costs for those who transfer their externally funded fellowship to the University of Glasgow.
•Enhance the competitiveness of an externally funded fellowship application.
Funding can be used to provide necessary match-funding of salary costs and/or a research support grant. Funding is also available to extend the duration of an externally funded fellowship (to a maximum of 5 years).
Fellows can be migrated to continuing posts with the University.
Fellows will be part of an existing network and will receive both mentorship and tailored support through the University’s early-career development programme.
