Fellowship Applications

Anyone interested in applying for a Fellowship with the Department as the host institution should contact the Director of Research (in additional to the academic that they are hoping to work with).

Potential applicants should contact the Department well in advance of the closing deadline, normally a minimum of two months ahead of the external deadline (note that there may be earlier internal deadlines as part of the selection process), with the following information:

  • Details of the scheme to which they wish to apply
  • Name of the academic within the Department of Psychology who they are hoping to work with

Important: Should a Fellowship application be successful, it will be the fellow’s responsibility to deal with issues of immigration, visas etc.
