ESRC Postdoctoral Fellow

Department :    

The London Interdisciplinary Social Science Doctoral Training Partnership (LISS DTP) is offering seven ESRC-funded postdoctoral fellowships to commence from 1st October 2019. The fellowships are available for one year full-time or two years part-time to be held at King's College London, Queen Mary University of London, or Imperial College London. The aim of these fellowships is to provide support to those who are within 12 months of completing their PhD, to support them in consolidating their PhD, and prepare them for the next stage of their research careers. For the majority this is likely to be a research career in academia; however, those with a clearly articulated programme of activities to support the transition to a research career outside of academia, can also be considered (e.g., a researcher in public, private, or civil society organisations). Proposals are welcome from both single disciplines and combinations of disciplines, but the fellowship activities must be based at least 50% within the social sciences and must fall under one of LISS DTP's Thematic Pathways:

The salary will be paid at Grade 6 or equivalent, £37,412 per annum including London Weighting Allowance (this will vary slightly depending on institution).

Closing date: 16.00 on 22nd March 2019. 

This post will be offered as a fixed-term contract for 1 year (or 2 years part-time).

This post can be held as Full-time (100%) or as Part-time (no less than 50% full time equivalent).

The selection process will include a panel interview and a presentation. Interviews are scheduled to be held in May 2019.
