Funding for Early Career Researchers (small pots of money)

Below are some possible sources of funding for PhD and PDRAs.  Please update whenever you find a new source or have more details of an existing one.  Eligibility is often unclear, so if in doubt email the appropriate contact and then update the details below.


  • access to ARCHER - there are 2 RAP calls for 2017 for 6 - 12 months of access to ARCHER, funded by EPSRC
  • embedded CSE (eCSE) support - only one eCSE call remains (see here); this call provides money to employ PDRAs/computational scientists to help maintain software sustainability and that runs on ARCHER
