Did you know the ESRC are getting rid of the post-doc fellowship (as well as small grants and mid career fellowships)?

Anyone who you know who is thinking of applying for the post-doc needs to get their application in by 1st Feb for it to be considered. They’re going to replace it with a ‘Future Leaders Scheme’ for early career researchers in the Spring, but there’s not much info on what that will be for or what the eligibility criteria will be. There’s a bit more info at: http://www.esrc.ac.uk/ESRCInfoCentre/opportunities/current_funding_opportunities/research/index.aspx
