There are a host of fellowships available from various funding bodies, charities and institutions specifically targeted at Early Career Researchers. We encourage the best candidates to contact us with a view to applying for fellowships to be held at Nottingham. The School of Chemistry at Nottingham was ranked as the number two department in the 2008 Research Assessment Exercise, and has outstanding facilities for research and a very good track record of nurturing and supporting high quality Early Career Researchers.
Hear about our current Research Fellows on their profile page.
These Fellowships are designed to give younger researchers who already have postdoctoral experience an opportunity to launch themselves into their own independent research career. All Fellowship applications require an original research proposal, which needs to be obviously distinct from the research of your postdoctoral or PhD supervisors. Fellowships are often a stepping stone to becoming a University lecturer but progression from Fellow to Lecturer is not automatic.
Most of the schemes available to applicants wishing to work at Nottingham are only open to UK or EU citizens and further details for each opportunity can be found in the Guide to Fellowships . Applications are particularly encouraged from women scientists.
