Postdoctoral and Early Career Researcher Exchanges (PECRE)

The main purpose of PECRE funding is to provide research training and development opportunities for the most able postgraduate and early career researcher members of SINAPSE, while at the same time building experience of international collaboration with academia and/or industry.

This funding is available only to SINAPSE members who belong to one of the seven partner Universities: Aberdeen, Dundee, Edinburgh, Glasgow, St. Andrews, Stirling, and Strathclyde.

Conditions of award

  • Each candidate may be the recipient of a single award only, up to a maximum value of £7,500. (Note however that one award can cover visits to multiple institutions or multiple visits to the same institution.)
  • Each exchange must be for a minimum period of at least one month. (Note however that multiple visits for periods of less than one month each are permissible.)
  • The funding must be used to support exchanges in Europe (outwith the UK), North America, China, and India only.
  • Eligible costs are restricted to economy travel and subsistence at the agreed institutional rate. Research costs are not eligible, and the funding must not be used for attendance at conferences, training seminars and the like.

Applications for PECRE funding are currently being accepted for exchanges in academic year 2019-20. The application form can be downloaded here, and must be submitted by the deadline of 25 October 2019 for consideration in this round.

Enquiries can be directed to kristin.flegal@glasgow.ac.uk.
