School of Politics and International Relations

ESRC Postdoctoral Fellowship Scheme Now Open

Would you like to join the School of Politics and International Relations as a postdoctoral researcher?

The ESRC is now advertising its Postdoctoral Fellowships scheme for the next academic year.

The scheme provides the opportunity for fellows to consolidate their PhD through developing publications, networks, and research and professional skills. Fellowships will be awarded for 12 months (or 24 months part-time).

Applicants must have completed their PhD at an institution that is part of an ESRC Doctoral Training Programme (DTP), although they need not themselves have been DTP students. They must have passed their PhD with at least minor corrections by 23rd March 2023, with the expectation that the PhD will be awarded by the time the fellowship begins; they must have no more than 12 months of postdoc experience by the same date.

Nottingham is part of the Midlands Graduate School ESRC DTP. Potential applicants are strongly encouraged to look at the research expertise of our staff and reach out in order to discuss your research plans. This mentor should not usually be the applicant’s PhD supervisor but should have experience and a strong interest in the applicant’s field of research.

The internal deadline for the School to put forward its nominated candidates is mid-January, so potential applicants should make contact with a suitable potential mentor no later than Christmas – and the earlier, the better.

For further information, please contact Dr Ben Holland.
