Research Fellows

The CSR keenly supports Early Career researchers

We have hosted Fellowships and Research Associateships thanks to funding from the AHRC, the Leverhulme Trust, The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, the MHRA, and Warwick's own Institute for Advanced Study. Many of our former postdoctoral fellows and research associates have subsequently gone on to build successful academic careers.

Project-related postdoctoral fellowships, often for one, two or three years, are advertised via our own website, Warwick’s Human Resources department, and other relevant channels, such as

From time to time the CSR also selectively supports outstanding candidates for national and international funding schemes (such as the British Academy Postdoctoral Fellowships, the Leverhulme Early Career Fellowships, Marie Sklodowska Curie, the AHRC Early Careers route or the Newton International Fellowships).

The CSR welcomes enquiries from prospective postdoctoral researchers. Before contacting us, please do check carefully the eligibility criteria and deadlines for any relevant scheme. All research proposals should fall within, or neatly complement, the current expertise and research interests of the CSR. Please see our staff list and research project pages for more details. We regret we will not be able to respond to last-minute enquiries.

The Warwick Institute of Advanced Study is designed to promote collaborative research projects of international calibre and profile. It operates across the full range of University Departments, Schools and Research Centres.
