The NUAcT Fellowship Scheme
NUAcT offers five-year, well-resourced Fellowships which can lead to faculty appointments and we are recruiting 100 new Fellows over the next five years.
Through the NUAcT fellowship scheme, we are looking to recruit a diverse cohort of investigators with the talent and motivation to become future research and academic leaders in their field. As a Fellow at Newcastle University, you will develop your career in an exciting working environment, be provided with a high level of dedicated time for research, have the freedom to develop your research interests and have access to our cutting-edge facilities. We are an anchor institution in a vibrant city and work closely with external partners, conducting research that benefits our region, our country and the world. Our international research is facilitated by having physical bases in four locations (Newcastle, London, Singapore and Malaysia).
EDI (Equality, Diversity and Inclusion) is one of the University’s core values: we are committed to providing equality of opportunity to succeed, valuing individual differences and the benefit this brings to the pursuit of academic excellence. We are working towards a fully inclusive University community which recruits and retains staff and students from all sectors of society and provides a positive and supportive culture. Our NUAcT Fellows will not only benefit from this, but will help us deliver a workplace culture in which fairness and equity are valued and where all of our staff and students can thrive.

This is a targeted NUAcT opportunity to work specifically within the framework of the UKRI GCRF Living Deltas Hub.
The Global Challenges Research Fund (GCRF) is a £1.5 billion fund which harnesses expertise of the UK’s world-leading researchers to promote the dignity and prosperity for some of the most disadvantaged and hardest to reach people on our planet.
Focusing on three major deltas in Asia, the Red River, Mekong and the Ganges-Brahmaputra-Meghna, the UKRI GCRF Living Deltas Hub (www.livingdeltas.org) operates on a model of equitable partnership, with delta-dwellers and the research community working together. The Living Deltas Hub will develop new knowledge and policies that will safeguard delta futures through more resilient communities and sustainable development.
Who can apply?
We seek applicants working in this area who have the potential to develop into independent research investigators. You must have a relevant PhD (or equivalent) and postdoctoral experience, a track record of high quality research, and be aspiring to apply for externally funded fellowships or other major grant awards. You will also have experience or demonstrable interest in research in an international context relevant to the GCRF Living Deltas Hub’s remit.
