Applications are welcomed from candidates who have a strong research profile and meet the following eligibility criteria:

  • They must either be a UK/EEA national, have completed their doctorate at a UK university or have a strong prior association with the UK academic community

  • The name of their proposed mentor at the University of Warwick
  • The name of their referee (please note that referees will not need to provide a statement for the internal selection round).
