Information for Postdoctoral Researchers

The department does not directly fund postdoctoral programmes, we do however support a number of postdoctoral fellowship schemes and work with a range of funding bodies. Details of some of the major schemes for postdoctoral research funding are given below, as well as our internal selection procedures where applicable. All applications for funding need to have received the support of the Department and the University before being sent to the funder so please check the funders’ guidelines and eligibility criteria before contacting a potential mentor in the Department or the Research Facilitator.

Potential applicants are encouraged to contact in the first instance.

Other postdoctoral positions may arise, normally funded by research project grants held by members of the Department. These will be advertised on the Department’s vacancies page and on the  University's vacancies pages.
