FSBI Postdoctoral International Travelling Fellowships (PITF)

The FSBI is pleased to invite applications for a newly established research funding opportunity: FSBI Postdoctoral International Travelling Fellowships (PITF).

Each FSBI Fellow (PITF) can apply for up to £20,000, to include travel, subsistence and accommodation, and eligible research costs, over an approximate duration of 3 months to be undertaken within 12 months of the award.

The scheme aims to;

  1. Support outstanding postdoctoral scientists to undertake research that is in line with the objectives of the FSBI.
  2. Facilitate international mobility and expertise and/or facilities of the chosen host.

The research can comprise independent experimental studies, development/validation of a methodology or fieldwork, or similar activities within an existing programme of research.



The research will require sufficient coherence to generate explicit quantifiable outputs and with a demonstrated benefit(s) to the career development of the FSBI Fellow.

Two PITFs are awarded each calendar year: Incoming PITF, hosted within an appropriate University, research body or industrial partner within the British Isles, and an Outgoing PITF, hosted at a suitable institution globally.

                                                            Applications for 2022 must be submitted before 17:00 (GMT) on the 24th February
