Researchers in Residence


Please note the announcement (4 July 2011) regarding the future of Research Councils UK’s (RCUK) Researchers in Residence programme. The focus over the next six months of the RinR scheme will be to complete as many placements as possible for those researchers and schools that have already applied to take part before the scheme closes on the 13 January 2012. Because of this, RinR is now closed to any further applications.
