The 2021 L’Oréal-UNESCO For Women in Science UK & Ireland Rising Talent Programme is now OPEN for applications.

The Women in Science Programme celebrates, enhances and enables the contribution of women to scientific research. Since 2007, they have awarded 62 female post-doctoral researchers in the UK and Ireland grants to advance their careers and facilitate world class research.

The five awards will be dedicated to research in the fields of Physical Science; Engineering; Mathematics and Computing; Life Science and Sustainable Development. The awards have been designed to provide flexible and practical financial support to ensure these women further their research and careers. With the flexible grant, winners may choose to spend their fellowship on buying scientific equipment, paying for childcare, travel costs or indeed whatever they need to continue their research. In addition to financial support, each year past and present fellows receive training and networking opportunities supported by L’Oréal.

Candidates must have completed their PhD and have started in their postdoctoral research position by the application deadline.
