Doctoral Prize Fellowships

We're looking for outstanding academics who have recently completed their PhDs to join Loughborough University to develop and establish an independent research career.

Up to 10 positions - £30,942 per annum

We highly value the contribution that postdoctoral researchers make to our research community and these prestigious two-year Research Fellowships will provide a package of support including Loughborough University academic sponsor, dedicated training, and specialist Fellowship advice.

During the Fellowship you will be expected to prepare and submit for an appropriate externally-funded Research Fellowship to set you on a trajectory to accelerate your research career, which will position you as a future research leader.

We have a number of Fellowships ring-fenced for Fellows who were supported by EPSRC for their PhD, if this is the case please indicate this in your application.

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.

The closing date for applications is 18 March 2020.
