The ESRC have recently announced that a new Postdoctoral Fellowship (PDF) scheme aimed at those in the immediately postdoctoral stage of their career, to provide the opportunity to consolidate their PhD through developing publications, their networks, and their research and professional skills.
The call - due to open soon - will be open to applicants who have completed their PhD at a research organisation that is part of a DTP or CDT and who are within 12 months of completing their PhD. At the submission deadline, the applicant must either have been awarded a PhD or have submitted their thesis and passed their viva voce with minor corrections, with the expectation that the PhD will be awarded by the fellowship start date.
The application deadline will be 16:00 on 23 March 2018, and applications will need to be made to a DTP or CDT. As such, applicants will be able to apply for postdoctoral study at Nottingham via the Midlands Graduate School DTP.
The Midlands Graduate School PDF scheme will open soon. Please join our mailing list to be updated with more news as soon as we have it.
