ESRC Postdoctoral Fellowships

ESRC invites applications for postdoctoral fellowships (PDF) to be based at accredited ESRC Doctoral Training Partnerships (DTPs) and Centres for Doctoral Training (CDTs). 

Fellowships are aimed at those in the immediately postdoctoral stage of their career, to provide the opportunity to consolidate their PhD through developing publications, their networks, and their research and professional skills.

The PDF call forms part of ESRC’s strategy to support early career researchers and will be delivered through our national network of Doctoral Training Partnerships (DTPs) and Centres for Doctoral Training (CDTs).

The call is open to applicants who have completed their PhD at a research organisation that is part of a DTP or CDT and who are within 12 months of completing their PhD. At the submission deadline, the applicant must either have been awarded a PhD or have submitted their thesis and passed their viva voce with minor corrections, with the expectation that the PhD will be awarded by the fellowship start date.

Call specification, FAQs, and application forms are now available. To apply to Surrey the fellow must be in one of the accredited pathways; please see the SeNSS website for further details. All applicants must submit a completed proposal along with the required attachments by 16.00 on 23 March 2018 to SeNSS via their Fluid Review applications portal. SeNSS will peer review the proposals and make funding decisions on behalf of ESRC by June 2018.
