Recently finished your PhD, or expect to do so soon, and looking for a golden opportunity?

Doctoral Prize Fellowship – up to 10 positions available across all Schools

This is a rare opportunity at such an early career stage to gain a prestigious 2-year Fellowship to pursue your own ambitious research idea and develop your skills as an independent researcher, with the support of a Loughborough University academic sponsor. During the Fellowship you will be expected to prepare and submit for an appropriate externally-funded Research Fellowship to advance your research plans further.

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 to find out more.

The closing date for applications is 10 May 2018.

Interviews will be held during weeks commencing 25th June and 2nd July 2018.
