Royal Society Research Professorship

Royal Society Research Professorships provide long term support for world-class researchers of outstanding achievement and promise. These are the Society’s premier research awards and the aim of this scheme is to release the best leading researchers from teaching and administration allowing them to focus on research.

What is the scheme’s value and tenure? 

Value and support provided:

  • Contribution to the award-holder’s salary costs (including on-costs) of £82,000 (basic salary) per year, which can be supplemented at the discretion of the host organisation;
  • Award holders will receive research expenses of up to £100,000 per year, confirmed until the end of March 2021.  
  • In addition, they may request startup costs of £200,000 in year 1 and £100,000 in year 2. 

[The Society will fund 80% of the full economic cost of the award for those Professorships funded through the Society’s Government grant. Further details are available from the Royal Society website (www.royalsociety.org) or via the university grants office]

Length of tenure: Research Professors are appointed for up to 10 years: 5 years in the first instance with the opportunity to renew the professorship for a further 5 years subject to satisfactory progress.  After 10 years, all responsibility for the post, financial and otherwise, will pass to the host organisation alone.  A representative of the host organisation will be asked to agree in principle to make this commitment when an application is submitted to the Society.
