EUTOPIA-SIF Postdoctoral Fellowships - Third Call for Applicants 

The third call for applications to the EUTOPIA Science and Innovation Fellowship scheme opened on 15th September 2022 with a deadline of 15th December 2022. 

The Fellowships provide two years of funding for early career researchers to undertake a significant piece of independent research as a step towards establishing a permanent academic career.  Fellows will be based at Warwick but will be able to strengthen their research by undertaking secondments at other EUTOPIA-SIF institutions and external partners. 

The IAS at Warwick will offer up to six fellowships in the third call.  Fellows will be hosted by the IAS but, to support their research, they will be based in an academic department or centres at Warwick under the guidance of an academic mentor. 

 Applications are welcome from any subject area or discipline but are expected to show a link to one of the five EUTOPIA SIF key research areas: 

  • Materials Engineering; 

  • Data & Intelligence; 

  • Health;  

  • Sustainability;  

  • Welfare & Inclusion. 

Successful applicants will start in September 2023 and join a community of fellows across the EUTOPIA Alliance fellows to develop their independent research profiles and undertake training to help establish an academic career. 

Further information and an FAQs are available on the IAS Website

IAS Events

  • In October 2022 the IAS welcomed the first cohort of ECF fellows for the 2022/23 Academic year. At the start of the month, we hosted an in-person welcome event followed by a social for the whole IAS fellow's community. It was great to see the new cohort networking with the other cohort of ECF fellows, but also the EUTOPIA-SIF fellows, Fernandes fellows and our Associate fellow. We look forward to future interactions between all our IAS fellows at Accolade sessions that are running this term.
  • In November we have some exciting Accolade events. Nicola Jones will be giving her second workshop of the term ‘Athena Professional Workshop:  Being a great collaborator; raising self-awareness and the ability to work with others effectively’. We will also hear from some of our ECF fellow who will be presenting their research at the Autumn Research Exchange Event, this was introduced last academic year and was very successful. We will also be hosting a Leverhulme Fellowship workshop where the IAS fellows will get the opportunity to hear from some Warwick Leverhulme awardees, Dr Diana Palacio Lozana, Dr Amanda Wilson and Dr Xiaona Wang. For more details on the Autumn term programme, please see our website.

Many congratulations to our Early Career Fellow Aiman Khattak who has been awarded her PhD! Aiman completed her PhD in English and Comparative Literary Studies at the University of Warwick in October 2022. Her doctoral project developed a nuanced comparative approach towards the analyses of post-9/11 Afghan, Iraqi and Pakistani literatures that was missing from mainstream postcolonial literary discourse and world-literary studies. It investigated sovereignty, race and war in these literatures through the lens of theories of bio-politics and empire. Aiman hopes to publish her PhD dissertation as a monograph with Oxford University Press, Cambridge University Press or Palgrave Macmillan. 

EUTOPIA-SIF Postdoctoral Fellowship Meeting

Dr. Sébastien Lapointe writes about the kick-off meeting of the EUTOPIA-SIF Postdoctoral Fellowship meeting at Cergy Paris University from the 19th to the 21st of October. The first cohort of fellows had been waiting for this opportunity to meet in person for a year. In this meeting, 6 of the fellows from the University of Warwick were able to meet in person with their colleagues from the other 5 universities of the initial EUTOPIA-SIF alliance. This meeting gathered the two first cohorts of Maria Skłodowska Curie EUTOPIA-SIF COFUND Postdoctoral Fellow selected so far. They attended multiple trainings necessary for their careers in order to take full advantage of the opportunities that the EUTOPIA-SIF programme offers. The training varied on topics ranging from Open Science to Innovation and Impact; all designed to give EUTOPIA-SIF fellows an edge and to give them all the tools necessary to grow into future leaders in academia, industry and in society. EUTOPIA-SIF Postdoctoral Fellows at Warwick are affiliated to various departments: 

Chemistry (Dr. Hannes Houck, Dr Xiao Cui Wu, Dr. Sébastien Lapointe, Dr. Evelina Liarou, and Dr. Rafael Cavalieri Marchi) 

School of Engineering (Dr. Deb Sanchari) 

English literature (Dr. Emrah Atasoy)  

School of Law (Dr. Valérie Hayaert) 

Sociology (Dr. Sarah Werner Boada). 

Exchanges: The Interdisciplinary Research Journal

Exchanges: The Interdisciplinary Research Journal 

October has been filled with two major activities for Exchanges. Firstly, the preparations for publication of the forthcoming volume 10.1 of the journal – scheduled for the end of the month at time of writing – have been a particular focus. All being well by the time you read this newsletter you’ll be able to access the new issue and its array of articles via the following DOI. 


Expanding the Board 

Alongside that, following the open call distributed via the EUTOPIA alliance and associate institutions, the Editor-in-Chief has been meeting with potential candidates to join the journal’s Editorial Board. This process is now complete, and a number of new and exciting editors will be onboarded from next month. Once the new Board members have passed through their induction phase each will be set to work on incoming manuscripts, likely initially working closely with one of our experienced editors. Because they are also our ambassadors at large for the journal, increasing the internationalisation of the Board’s membership stands to play particular dividends in terms of attracting new authors to submit their work to the title. On top of this, these new joiners will also provide the editorial team with a greater resource for handling the ever-rising range of submissions received by Exchanges. You can of course find out more about the Editorial Board via the link below. 


Exchanges Live and In Person 

As has been traditional, the Editor-in-Chief has been contributing to the IAS Accolade programme for research fellows. Firstly, they popped up at the induction event in early October, before returning to host one of their popular Exchanges: Ask Me Anything interactive and unplugged sessions at the end of the month. Both of these sessions have been live and in person for the first time in a couple of years, making for a pleasant change of pace from remote presentation! The Editor-in-Chief is also collaborating with Warwick’s Leadership and Management Development department, and will be contributing to a series of workshops on the theme of academic publishing and editing. It is hoped over the year the workshops are running, that all three cohorts of participants will also be able to contribute to a special issue of the journal planned for publication in the Autumn term 2023. 

The Exchanges Discourse podcast 

More new episodes of the companion podcast to the journal are now live, featuring further interviews with authors to the recent special issue of the journal. These sessions have given rise to some of the most content rich episodes we’ve recorded to date, and our thanks is noted to each of the contributors for their participation and generous insights. One final episode related to this issue is due for release in the next week or so, but after that we hope to arrange discussions with authors from the October ’22 issue of Exchanges to round out an engaging year of podcasting. You can find all the episodes of The Exchanges Discourse on most podcasting platforms (including Spotify) by searching on the name, or via the link below: 


Call for Papers: Authentic Interdisciplinarity & Open Call 

A quick reminder of our current open calls for contribution. Firstly, as part of our tenth anniversary preparations for the October 2023 issue of the journal, our very special call for contributions concerning ideas, conceptions or perceptions around authentic interdisciplinarity. You can find details of this call for papers here. Take note that the closing date for peer reviewed pieces is not too far away now, but there’s still a few months to submit a conversation or critical reflection piece. 


Additionally, Exchanges’ open call for manuscript submissions throughout the year by scholars in all disciplines remains available. We are as always especially keen to represent work from first-time or less experienced authors, within the early career research community. Details of this open call for contributions can be found here:  


As with all Exchanges calls, the Editor-in-Chief welcomes discussions with potential authors ahead of submission, although this is not a pre-requisite. 

 About the Journal 

Exchanges is dedicated to supporting and propagating research discourse primarily, but not exclusively, from early career scholars around the globe. Framed in an interdisciplinary mode, articles are intended to be read by a broad academic audience. The journal also has a strong developmental ethos, embraced within its editorial culture and increasing authorial development outreach activities. The journal’s operations are managed by its Editor-in-Chief, Dr Gaz J Johnson, based at the IAS. The journal is supported by an Editorial Board network with members recruited from institutions comprising Warwick’s global research partners. Contact the Editor-in-Chief at:
