ESRC Postdoctoral Fellowships
Economic and Social Research Council
ESRC invites applications for postdoctoral fellowships (PDF) to be based at accredited ESRC Doctoral Training Partnerships (DTPs).
Fellowships are aimed at 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 PDF call forms part of ESRC’s strategy to supporting early career researchers and will be delivered through our national network of Doctoral Training Partnerships (DTPs).
The call is open to applicants who have completed their PhD at a research organisation that is part of a DTP 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.
Call specification, FAQs, and the application form will be available on the DTP websites. All applicants must submit a full proposal along with the required attachments by 16.00 on 23 March 2020 to the DTP they are applying to. Please note that some DTPs may also have a mandatory Expression of Interest stage prior to the deadline for full applications. Each DTP will peer review the proposals and make funding decisions on behalf of ESRC by June 2020.
The DTPs and CDTs who are eligible to receive proposals and award fellowships can be found here.
For queries, please contact the relevant DTP.
