Research Fellows

Research fellowships provide postdoctoral scholars at an early stage of their academic career with the opportunity to develop their research potential through participation in the intellectual life at the University of Nottingham.

To further develop their individual research, each fellow is affiliated with a faculty member who acts as a mentor.


Research fellowships are generally fixed term for two years, enabling fellows to develop their research, teaching and broader academic profiles.

Integration with the school

Fellows are encouraged to produce outstanding research outputs and disseminate their findings as well as to take part in the School of Law's activities. These include teaching opportunities (at postgraduate and undergraduate levels) as well as administrative responsibilities including membership of key school committees such as the Research Committee.

Research fellows benefit from a wide range of facilities, including:

  • access to the academic skills training programme
  • library membership
  • research allowance
  • office space

Fellows are fully supported to make a significant contribution to the research culture of the School of Law through pursuing their own research agendas in a dynamic and hospitable environment, while also being strongly encouraged to collaborate with other faculty members.
