Future Roads Fellowships


The Future Roads Fellowships Programme (FUTUREROADS) is hosted by the University of Cambridge and co-funded by partners Costain Group Plc and Highways England Company Ltd. It offers 27 x 36-month fellowships over 3 recruitment rounds focused primary in digital twins, smart materials, data science, automation and robotics, and sustainability solutions for the road infrastructure industry. The programme allows applicants to have the freedom to develop their own ideas with access to excellent facilities. FUTUREROADS will enhance fellows’ understanding of the methodologies and approaches of other scientific disciplines at the highest level. The aim is also to establish a multidisciplinary training platform to strengthen researchers’ capabilities such that they are capable to work anywhere in Europe and, therefore, attract researchers from around the globe to Europe and contributing to the European goals of increasing the numbers of researchers with innovation skills in Europe. The programme supports incoming fellowships for postdoctoral researchers on a competitive basis. It aims at high-potential individuals primarily interested in following a career in the transportation infrastructure sector or academia. Awardees will be offered an employment contract with a standard postdoctoral salary and will be entitled to an individual mobility and research budgets. Fellows are offered career development support and training events to develop their non-scientific skills. They are expected to take part in teaching activities at Cambridge and are encouraged to apply for additional competitive funding. The programme is open for all applicants who meet the MSCA mobility rules for fellows.
