Our fellows are essential to our mission of delivering exceptional research that transforms lives in the UK and across the world.
Apply now and join a university with a diverse, thriving community and a reputation for transformative discoveries. Our fellows are the research leaders of tomorrow, working with inspirational pioneers from across disciplines to find solutions to complex global problems.
We recognise that exceptional people come from many backgrounds, with diverse career paths and circumstances that are as individual as you are. We are committed to an inclusive and dynamic research environment, and welcome applications from those wishing to work part-time to meet personal responsibilities. We are especially interested in supporting those from Black and Asian backgrounds.
We have two parallel schemes, offering the same package of support:
Anne McLaren Fellowships, aimed at outstanding female postdoctoral researchers in science, technology, engineering and medicine at the early stage of their academic careers, who are typically under-represented in these subjects
Nottingham Research Fellowships, targeted at exceptional postdoctoral researchers from all academic disciplines represented at the university
Excellent support to enable you to achieve your research ambitions, including:
Three years’ independent research funding, covering salary costs at around £40,000-£49,000
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
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.
