Welcome to the Royal Society's Online Application Portal

Please read this important information before making an application:

Thank you for your interest in the Royal Society. We have introduced a new recruitment system from 12 June 2017. 

Please browse our vacancies by using the search options below. If you wish to apply for a vacancy you will need to register and create a profile.  If you have previously registered with this new system, please login. Previous registrations from our old system will not be carried over. 

You can apply for a vacancy by uploading your CV and cover letter. Applications without these documents will not be considered. Other information is optional.


Our advertisements will specify whether we require additional information in your application so please read the job description and advertisement before you apply.

If your application is shortlisted for interview, you will be contacted by the HR team with further information. If you have applied for a vacancy but you have not heard from us after two weeks of the closing date, then unfortunately your application has not been successful this time.


We receive a large number of applications for our vacancies which means that we are unable to provide feedback if your application has been unsuccessful. 


If you have any questions about a specific vacancy please e-mail humanresources@royalsociety.org
