PAIS has been extremely successful in attracting early career researchers into the department on postdoctoral fellowships. It currently has a number of postdoctoral fellows amongst its staff members, some who have come to the department on big grants and others through winning individually awarded fellowships through dedicated postdoctoral funding schemes. The four most recent successes in this latter category have brought the total amount of money awarded to PAIS in competitively organised postdoctoral fellowships to over £300k in 2017.
We always want to hear from the best possible candidates for postdoctoral awards. Anyone who believes that they have a research CV suited to such success and is interested in applying for postdoctoral funding through PAIS must:
- make contact with a member of academic staff who they hope will act as their designated mentor;
- notify both the Head of Department (Nick Vaughan-Williams) and the Director of Research (Christopher Moran) in PAIS.
It is imperative that both the Head of Department and the Director of Research are consulted from the outset of the application process because the department has financial limits on the number of applications that can be put forward.
The research interests of staff can be found at-a-glance on the PAIS people page, which also contains links to more in-depth research profiles. Details of some of the key funding sources for postdoctoral research can be found on Post-Doc Funding Opportunities page.
