Postdoctoral Fellowships

We are pleased to announce the second call for our Postdoctoral Fellowship (PDF) scheme 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 support early career researchers and will be delivered through our national network of Doctoral Training Partnerships (DTP) and Centres for Doctoral Training (CDT).

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 passing their viva voce. 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 call specification, a frequently asked questions document and application form will be available on the DTP/CDT websites. DTPs and CDTs will have their own procedures in place to peer review the proposals and make funding decisions on behalf of ESRC. Where this includes an ‘Expressions of Interest’ stage, potential applicants must abide by the deadlines specified by the DTP/CDT to which they intend to apply. 

Key Dates

All applicants must submit a full proposal along with the required attachments by 16:00 on 22 March 2019 to the DTP or CDT they are applying to.
