As part of the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council’s (EPSRC) Doctoral Prize initiative the University of Glasgow is funding a number of two-year research fellowships. 

The Doctoral Prize is intended to develop the very best EPSRC supported students beyond the end of their PhD and support their transition to independent researchers. Applicants are invited to propose a novel research project in an area which fits within the EPSRC’s funding remit and are expected to demonstrate independence from their PhD supervisor. (https://www.epsrc.ac.uk/funding/applicationprocess/basics/)

Prizewinners must undertake significant new research and submit at least one application for grant funding to allow continuity of employment during the tenure of the award.

The University will provide fellows with a research mentor and the opportunity to work in a world-class research and training environment.

Eligible applicants must have received fees and/or stipend support from the EPSRC during their PhD studies. 

The Fellowships are aimed at those who have recently completed their PhD and only applicants who submitted their thesis after the 1st July 2016 will be eligible. Applicants must have had a successful viva and been awarded their PhD by the time the Fellowship commences.

Fellowships are expected to commence before the end of June 2018. 

External students who have not carried out their PhD studies at the University of Glasgow are also encouraged to apply.

Funding is available for up to 2 years in the first instance.

It is the University of Glasgow’s mission to foster an inclusive climate, which ensures equality in our working, learning, research and teaching environment.

We strongly endorse the principles of Athena SWAN, including a supportive and flexible working environment, with commitment from all levels of the organisation in promoting gender equity
