Excellent support to enable you to achieve your research ambitions, including:

  • Three years’ independent research funding, covering salary costs at c.£43,155 to £54,421
  • The link to a permanent academic post, subject to performance
  • Additional funding for research expenses totalling £75,000
  • Childcare costs of up to £15,000 
  • Access to mentoring, career development and networking with the wider fellowship community

Eligibility: You will have been awarded your PhD. Our fellowships are aimed at early career researchers, but we will ensure that varied career paths are taken into account and candidates are assessed on their quality, potential and track record, relative to their career stage.
