University of Bath Prize Fellowships

University of Bath – Faculty of Engineering & Design

Our Prize Fellowships offer early-stage researchers the opportunity to join a cohort of like-minded rising research stars. These two-year research fellowships in our priority research areas are part of a scheme intended to fast-track fellows to a permanent appointment at Bath.

We are seeking future academic leaders across a range of disciplines who will benefit from our well-resourced and supportive research environment.

As a member of this elite group, you will be on track to become a key member of our research community with a permanent academic position. Our supportive community successfully nurtures ambitious early stage researchers and provides for the requirements of their developing research programme. Read more about our Prize Fellowships.

In the Faculty of Engineering & Design we will appoint Fellows to further strengthen and develop areas of existing research excellence.

We welcome applications in the following research areas:

  • Electric Propulsion
  • Materials and Structures
  • Sensors for Autonomous Systems
  • Power Electronics for Electric Machines and Energy Storage Systems
  • Advanced Bio-separations
  • Refining of Biological Feedstocks
  • Sustainable Concrete Technology
  • Design of Smart Buildings

As part of your application you must provide:

  • a completed application form
  • an outline of your research plans over the next 3-5 years, showing how you will complement and enhance research within the research area (no more than 2 sides of A4, minimum font size 11)
  • a CV

The application process will ask you to select which area of research you wish to be apply for. If you are applying for more than one research area, then you will need to specify this when prompted.


Further details of each area and contact names for enquiries can be found on the Engineering & Design Prize Fellowships page.
