Applications are invited for ESRC’s new postdoctoral fellowship scheme. The awards will fund new researchers for one year immediately after the completion of their doctorate.
Approximately 30 awards are available in the first year commencing from October 2001. Applications are welcome from all disciplines, although it is intended that half of the awards will be made in the following priority areas: economics; management and business studies; area studies; and, work with a quantitative or cross disciplinary approach.
Applicants must have completed their doctorate within two years from the beginning of the award or expect to do so by October 1 2001. Those returning to work after a career break will also be eligible. Applications must be made through institutions recognised by ESRC for research funding and should come with the full support of the institution and a nominated mentor who will guide the fellow. Application forms and other documentation are available for downloading.
