University Research Fellowships 2020/21: applications open

University logo

The University Committee for Research & Innovation is supporting up to five University Research Fellowships which provide £10,000 to successful applicants to cover teaching replacement costs and research expenses. Fellowships will be for the duration of one year and can be taken by part-time staff on a fractional basis over two years.

The University Research Fellowships are intended to support researchers in the arts, humanities, and social sciences across the four University research themes. The Fellowships will support the development of research leaders at any stage of their career, and the projects should therefore show a demonstrable step-change in terms of significance and ambition, appropriate to the applicant's career stage. Successful applicants will be supported to develop research leadership through mentoring and training, where appropriate. Holders of active internal University Fellowships or RETF Open Call awards will not be eligible to apply until such time as their current awards are successfully completed.

Pro-Vice Chancellors for Research and Innovation Professors Parveen Yaqoob and Dominik Zaum said:

"With COVID-19 having an effect on many aspects of our lives, including research funding, we are especially happy that we are able to offer the University Research Fellowships this year. We're looking forward to receiving applications that are original in their thought, rigorous in their planning and strong in their delivery. We strongly encourage all eligible colleagues to apply and considerations of career stage will be taken into account for early career researchers."
