Supporting early career researchers

We  support excellent early career researchers and offer Five-Year University Research Fellowships to support individuals with an emerging reputation for innovative research on a trajectory to become the next generation of research and academic leaders. For specific queries regarding fellowships in the Institute of Neuroscience please contact Professor Melissa Bateson or Professor Zosia Chrzanowska-Lightowlers.

We provide a good working environment for our staff and students and in November 2014 were awarded an Athena SWAN Silver Award. In line with this we have both Post-doctoral and Postgraduate Committees  to ensure that these groups are represented during our decision making processes and to offer support and guidance. We have also recently launched an Early Career Mentoring Scheme to support the careers of our young researchers. If you would like more information please email ion@newcastle.ac.uk
