Doctoral Prize Fellowships

We're looking for outstanding academics who have recently completed their PhDs to join Loughborough University to develop and establish an independent research career.

These prestigious two-year Research Fellowships offer a rare opportunity to pursue your own ambitious research idea and develop your skills as an independent researcher.

We highly value the contribution that postdoctoral researchers make to our research community and will provide a package of support including Loughborough University academic sponsor, dedicated training, and specialist Fellowship advice.

During the Fellowship you will be expected to prepare and submit for an appropriate externally-funded Research Fellowship to set you on a trajectory to accelerate your research career, which will position you as a future research leader.

You must have passed your PhD examination, including completion of any corrections to the satisfaction of your examiners, by the time your Doctoral Prize Fellowship begins. You must also be within two years of your PhD examination on the closing date for applications.

We would particularly like to encourage BME and female applicants as we are actively seeking to increase numbers of academic staff from these under-represented groups.

Applications from those who might want to work part-time are very welcome.

Join us and build excellence. Visit www.lboro.ac.uk/dpf to find out more.

The closing date for applications is 10 April 2019.
