Eligibility: This funding stream is intended to improve the exploitation of EPSRC research outcomes through the transfer of people between universities and 'user organisations', which may be government departments, NHS, Charities and industry. However, unless approved by EPSRC, the secondment must be hosted in the UK. The funding can be used to support both outward secondments and inward secondments, with different eligibility conditions applying in each case. The attachment below gives further information.
Deadline: 15th March 2010
Guidelines: please contact @email in the first instance
Eligibility: Applications for funding must be within any of the following remits; animal systems, health and wellbeing; plants, microbes, food and sustainability; technological and methodological development; molecules, cells and industrial biotechnology.

Eligibility: Aimed at encouraging new and innovative UK-China collaborative projects focusing on carbon capture and storage (CCS) technologies. Funds of up to £2 million from the Energy Programme/EPSRC and matching equivalent resources from the Natural Science Foundation of China (NSFC) are available to support high quality projects in this call, projects should be up to three years in duration.
Deadline: 25th March 2010

Eligibility: The Institute invites proposals for research programmes in any branch of mathematics or the mathematical sciences. The Scientific Steering Committee usually meets twice each year to consider proposals for programmes (of 4-week, 4-month or 6-month duration) to run two or three years later.
Deadline: 10th July 2010

Eligibility: Grants are made to the organisers of conferences to be held in the United Kingdom. Any mathematician based in the UK is eligible to apply for a grant, but if the applicant is not a member of the Society then the application must be countersigned by a member who is prepared to support the application. Applications should be made by one of the organisers of the conference. Programme Committee tends to give priority to the support of meetings where an LMS grant can be expected to make a significant contribution to the viability and success of the meeting. The Society expects that the meetings which it supports will be open to all, and will only support a closed meeting if an exceptional case is made. Support of larger meetings of high quality is not ruled out, but for such meetings an LMS grant will normally cover only a modest part of the total cost.
Deadline: 24th April 2010

Eligibility: Grants are made towards the cost of exploring potential new collaborations between mathematicians and non-mathematicians on new applications of mathematics. Any mathematician working in the UK is eligible to apply for a grant, but if none of the applicants is a member of the Society then the application must be countersigned by an LMS member who is prepared to support the application. The use of the grants is not restricted but might include the costs of a small-scale meeting to identify problems or travel costs to bring in external experts. The intention is to help the applicants do the preparatory work prior to a larger scale application to EPSRC.
Deadline: 10th May 2010

Eligibility: Funding which is intended to provide a small grant to a mathematician within the UK to help support a visit for collaborative research. The visit may be made either by the grantee to another institution within the UK or abroad, or by a named mathematician from within the UK or abroad to the home base of the grantee. The time available for joint research arising from the grant is expected to be at least several working days. Any mathematician based in the UK is eligible to apply for a grant, but if the applicant is not a member of the Society then the application must be countersigned by a member who is prepared to support the application. Applicants should bear in mind that the purpose of the scheme is to support specific projects with named collaborators and not, for example, simply to contribute to the costs of a sabbatical visit. The Committee will support only mathematical activities or the mathematical component of wider activities, and here the word mathematical excludes mathematics education.
Deadline: 24th April 2010

Eligibility: The fund does not provide support for studentships. To be eligible for start-up support as an 'early career researcher', applicants must be both within the first 5 years in post as an independent researcher at Oxford and in the early stages of their research career. More experienced researchers who are new in post can still apply to the Fund for support, but will need to do so under other categories e.g. for specific pump-priming support, rather than general start up. Departments and potential applicant are advised to read the new FAQ section on the Fell Fund website:
http://www.admin.ox.ac.uk/pra/fundinginitiatives/faqsdec09.shtml Applications are assessed by a generalist panel of academics; applicants should therefore ensure that their application is written with a non-specialist audience in mind. Furthermore, following a change in policy the Fell Fund is now allocating less money in each Main Awards found than in previous years. Applicants are asked to bear in mind the reduced level of funding available when putting forward proposals.
Deadline: 31st March 2010
Eligibility: To be used for making grants to support the attendance of UK-based mathematicians at the ICM in Hyderabad from 19-27th August 2010 (http://www.icm2010.org.in). The grants are not to be used for support at satellite meetings. The Society would particularly like to support those in the early stage of their career, including postdoctoral researchers but not usually PhD students. You do not need to be a member of the LMS to apply. Applicants must have been unsuccessful in applying for a Royal Society International Travel Grant (the February 2010 round), based in the UK and involved in mathematics at postdoctoral level and above.
Deadline: 9th April 2010

Eligibility: The Research Grants scheme provides 'seed corn' funding for new projects of timeliness and promise initiated by research scientists at an early stage of their career (within the first 5 years of the start date of their first permanent academic position). The objective of the scheme is to increase the availability of specialised equipment and essential consumable materials, and to support essential field research. The scheme also provides support for research in the history of science or to assist with publication of scholarly works in the history of science. Applicants must be resident in the UK, they should have postdoctoral level or
equivalent status at the time of the application and have a permanent or
limited-tenure position in an eligible organisation. An applicant who is a post
doctorate paid by a grant for which someone else is the principal investigator
is not eligible. Applicants must play a major part and take a leading role in
the project and not make its fulfilment more than marginally dependent on the
services of postgraduate/doctoral students.
