The 2018 round for Newton International Fellowship applications to the Royal Society and British Academy is now open and applications must be submitted to Research Services by 5pm, Tuesday 20 March. Please note that the guidance for this year has been revised, with regard to the visitor status of the fellows, including a new, customised, visitor agreement. There is also some new guidance for PIs which underlines that the NIFs must be treated as visitors within the department: this extends to ensuring that HR processes regarding monitoring of attendance or performance as NOT applied to them. The immigration route for any NIFs requiring a work visa has also changed. You can download this revised guidance from the Research Services website.
