BBSRC and NERC are providing platforms for a Knowledge Exchange (KE) Fellow to bring tangible benefits to business performance through sustained knowledge exchange and effective research translation. With a primary focus on Horticulture and Potato Initiative (HAPI), but also looking across the industry-academic collaborative programme portfolio, the KE Fellow is to work with the Horticulture Innovation Partnership (HIP2) to develop and implement strategies to: (i) Develop a thriving, interdisciplinary scientific community, working with business and undertaking research translation within and at the interface of the biosciences and environmental sciences; and (ii) Drive innovation to realise the full potential of research outputs to deliver economic, social and environmental benefits.

Call opens: 1st July 2014. Application deadline: 5th Novemeber 2014. Aimed at: Early career researchers from academia or industry who have demonstrated high potential, and who wish to establish an independent academic career focused on the translation of fundamental bioscience research. The current call will support the translation of basic plant science into crop science research. Nature of award: Awards are for 5 years, up to 2 fellowships are available, and include personal salary and a significant research support grant. Applications are welcome from candidates seeking flexible working arrangements (e.g. part-time); see the Fellowships handbook for further information (see downloads). Translational Fellowships are distinct and, in addition to the standard BBSRC David Phillips fellowships, are awarded annually. It will be mandatory for Translational Fellows to incorporate an interchange with relevant stakeholder(s), either during or after the fellowship term. Following the award of a Translational Fellowship, additional support will be made available for the interchange through our FLexible Interchange Programme (FLIP).
