Following a successful bid to ESRC, we will be offering four Post Doctoral Fellowships per year from 2018 as part of a new UK-wide scheme. The Fellowships last one year (or part-time equivalent) and come with a salary. They can contain some new research activity, but their primary purpose is the consolidation of your research profile soon after successful completion of your PhD. Like those hosted in other UK DTPs, they will be open to applicants from across the UK. This will make them highly competitive.
The ESRC are finalising the details. Once these are published we will be putting further details here and will include general advice and links to the relevant pages on the ESRC website.
