The fellowships allow the University to host an international early career scholar (non UK citizen within 7 years of PhD) for two years, with the requirement that 'Applicants must have a clearly defined and mutually beneficial research proposal agreed with a UK host researcher'. These fellowships provide a stipend of £24,000 p.a., generous research costs, and relocation -- if you are aware of a suitable candidate, please do strongly consider asking them to apply. The University is required to match fund the fellowships so the number of applications will be monitored and no more than 2 are expected per department with an optional additional application if it is an interdisciplinary project and has the support of a named research Centre.

The deadline for applications has now passed.
