We are offering funding opportunities via our Researcher-in-Residence programme and invite proposals from researchers who wish to join REPHRAIN, the UKRI funded Research Centre on Privacy, Harm Reduction and Adversarial Influence Online as a REPHRAIN Academic Fellow.

The programme aims to cultivate and provide a public space to maximise collaboration with the wider community and to offer an environment for mutual engagement and learning. The remit of the programme is to host researchers from the wider UK/international community in its touchdown space in Bristol and its partner organisations (current Government restrictions pending) to enable access to the Centre’s facilities, including datasets and testbed, and for the Centre to benefit in return from proposal outputs.

We expect to fund up to 20 Researchers-in-Residence as part of this programme with an indicative maximum funding of £15,000 at 100% Full Economic Cost (fEC) per UK based researcher time. International researchers are also welcome to apply but please note that travel costs only can be funded through the programme. This is an open, rolling call – all funded projects must be completed, with all deliverables, by 30 June 2024.
