EUTOPIA-SIF Postdoctoral Fellowships - First call to open soon 

In partnership with our collaborators in the EUTOPIA European University we will shortly be launching the first call for applications to the EUTOPIA-SIF postdoctoral fellowships programme.  This programme is funded through the Marie Sklodowska Curie COFUND programme and will see twenty fellows recruited across the alliance in this first call. 

The EUTOPIA-SIF programme aims to give young researchers from around the world the opportunity to develop their independent research and undertake training to establish an academic career.  

The programme offers an opportunity to bring outstanding early-career researchers to Warwick, as well as being an excellent opportunity for our own early career researchers to travel to one of the EUTOPIA partners and take a significant step towards establishing themselves in an academic role. 

For more details see the EUTOPIA-SIF website or contact the IAS.  



We are delighted to welcome the final cohort of WIRL- COFUND fellows to the IAS as they start their two-year career development fellowships.  Joining our existing community of early career researchers are; 

  • Dr Andrei Bespalov (Philosophy) 
  • Dr William Fysh (History) 
  • Dr Svenja Janke (Chemistry) 
  • Dr Marta Pereira da Silva Neves (Chemistry) 
  • Dr Luca Peretti (School of Modern Languages & Cultures) 

This brings to a close the recruitment of fellows on the WIRL-COFUND programme but our new EUTOPIA-SIF fellowships will start recruiting in October 2020.  These expand the WIRL programme with 76 fellows to be recruited across the EUTOPIA alliance over the next five years.
