Sociology at Newcastle University is recognised for internationally excellent research through the Policy, Ethics and Life Sciences (PEALS) research centre and across its research clusters:
- Power, Inequalities and Citizenship
- Identities, Embodiments and Selves
- Imagining Pasts and Futures
We have a vibrant research environment with regular research group meetings, an annual seminar series which supports fruitful discussion of ideas at all stages of development, and high levels of research income from ‘blue chip’ funders such as the:
- UK research councils
- European Union
- Wellcome Trust
We are keen to build on our existing strengths by attracting early career scholars with outstanding potential to work with us on research projects that will make an original and significant contribution to the study of sociology. As such, we invite expressions of interest for applications for ongoing schemes including fellowships funded by non-UK funding bodies. These include:
- Leverhulme Early Career Fellowship
- BA Newton International Fellowship
- Rubicon Fellowship
- Wellcome Trust Fellowship
- Marie Sklowdowska-Curie Individual Fellowships
We welcome applications from postdoctoral fellows wishing to visit Newcastle University as part of their research programme.
We also welcome enquiries and applications for other postdoctoral funding schemes.
