The University of Liverpool will award 10 fellowships to researchers from India, to further enhance research links between the University and world-renowned Indian institutions.
The Fellowship programme will offer opportunities to outstanding early to mid-career researchers from India to strengthen their experience of research and teaching in an international environment.
Building on existing collaborations with institutions in Bangalore, Hyderabad, Kolkata and New Delhi, the University is looking to explore new partnerships by inviting the next generation of researchers to help create the foundation for a growing Liverpool-India Research Network.
“By providing these fellowships for future research leaders, we look forward to taking the University’s partnerships in India to the next level and to building a network of long-lasting relationships.”
The University works closely with a number of Indian institutions on research projects focused on tackling some of the world’s biggest health and social challenges. This includes study in Bangalore as part of a UK-India Education and Research Initiative (UKIERI) grant, where scientists are working with the Council of Scientific and Industrial Research (CSIR), on developing climate modelling to predict the spread of malaria.
As part of the same funding scheme, a team at the University’s School of the Arts is collaborating with Jadavpur University, Kolkata, to generate a new understanding of the ways in which urban India has provided a space for cross-cultural encounters with travellers, writers, artists, and architects from around the world.
