Fernandes Fellowships

Supported by a generous donation to the University, the Fernandes Fellowships aim to develop lasting research collaborations between Warwick and Europe.

The Fellowships will allow those in research, tenure-track or early academic positions at European institutions to undertake a three-month visit to Warwick (possibly split over two or three visits) in order to develop long-term research collaborations by participating in a specific program of research and scholarship with their host and other collaborators, and engaging with the wider Warwick research community.

The Fernandes Fellowships are open to researchers working in all subject areas, however applicants working in the following research fields are particulary welcomed:

  • Human disease, particularly reproductive health, antimicrobial resistance, cancer and ageing

  • Data, artificial intelligence and associated ethics

  • Economics, management, behavioural science and governance

  • Energy, sustainability, and circular economy

  • Analytical technologies for healthcare, life science and the environment

The programme will run until December 2021 and in total 25 Fellowships are available over the three years.

The scheme is open to researchers who have less than 10 years postdoctoral experience and who are currently employed at a university or other research institute in any European country except the UK. Fellows will receive a stipend of £2,000 per month, travel costs of up to £1,000 and research, support and training costs of up to £3,000.
