The Postdoctoral Fellowship (PDF) Scheme is aimed at providing a career development opportunity for those in the immediately postdoctoral stage of their career, to provide the opportunity to consolidate their PhD through developing publications, their networks, and their research and professional skills.
The ESRC have awarded funding to the NWSSDTP to support four Postdoctoral Fellowships, to take place at one of the four NWSSDTP institutions (Keele University, Lancaster University, University of Liverpool or University of Manchester).
The call is open to applicants who have completed their PhD at a research organisation that is part of a DTP or CDT and who are within 12 months of completing their PhD. At the submission deadline, the applicant must either have been awarded a PhD or have submitted their thesis and passed their viva voce with minor corrections, with the expectation that the PhD will be awarded by the fellowship start date.
The competition will open shortly. Further information and application paperwork will be made available here.
The deadline for applications will be the 23rd March 2018. Awards will be made by the end of June 2018, with Postdoctoral Fellowships commencing on the 1st October 2018.
