Our Fellowships focus on research excellence and attracting external research funding. Your teaching responsibilities will be minimal for the first three years, but an aptitude and enthusiasm for teaching is desirable.

Contributing to equality, diversity and inclusion is an important part of our Fellowships. As a Fellow you will be a role model in supporting the University’s principles on fairness and inclusion.

You’ll have the track record and creativity to develop into an independent researcher. You must have:

  • a relevant PhD (or equivalent)
  • postdoctoral experience
  • a track record of high quality research
  • eligibility for external funding
  • aspirations to apply for externally funded fellowships or other major grant awards

Your research interest(s) should closely align with research conducted across the University.
