Our Anne McLaren and Nottingham Research Fellowship schemes will produce the next generation of outstanding research leaders.
The deadline for expressions of interest is 5pm on 4 November 2016
Anne McLaren Fellowships
Our Anne McLaren Fellowships are aimed at outstanding female scholars in science, technology, engineering and medicine at the early stage of their academic careers.
Nottingham Research Fellowships
The Nottingham Research Fellowships Scheme targets outstanding early career researchers in most academic disciplines at the University.
Fellowships will normally commence in October 2017, but there is individual flexibility around this date.
Candidates must have been awarded their PhD prior to the Expression of interest submission date, and should have no more than 8 years of post-doctoral experience following the award of their PhD. Career breaks such as maternity leave, EU national service, and Voluntary Service Overseas can be discounted, but teaching experience and/or time spent in industry since the award of a PhD should amount to no more than 96 months.
Candidates for the Anne McLaren Fellowships must be female and pursuing a career in a STEM subject.
Candidates for the Nottingham Research Fellowships can be from any academic discipline across the University, provided the host school is participating in the scheme.
Candidates must demonstrate experience sufficient to confirm their ability to complete the proposed programme of work.
The University of Nottingham will act as sponsor for any candidate who does not have the right to work in the UK.
Candidates should be able to demonstrate:
- An outstanding track record of research including high-quality publications, research funding and/or prizes and awards
- Evidence of a growing reputation, both nationally and internationally
- An aptitude to lead and inspire others within the research team and institution more broadly
- Potential to act as an ambassador in their research field and more widely
- Part-time appointments will be considered on a pro-rata basis.
Individuals who have been promised or already have a permanent position are considered to have achieved the aims of the scheme already and will not be eligible.
It is recommended that candidates discuss their proposed EOI with the Head of the School/Department that would host their Fellowship, should their application be successful.
When submitting an EOI to the Head of School/Department, please mark your email “Name – NRF/AMF Expression of Interest submission”.
If you are applying for both schemes, please ensure that you indicate this on the EOI form, and mark your email NRF/AMF Expression of Interest submission
Each participating school has nominated a lead academic to act as the contact point for applicants. If your proposed host school is not listed, then this means that the school is not taking part.
- If your school is not listed, then it is not participating. In this recruitment round those schools not participating are:
- All schools in the Faculty of Arts
- Clinical Academics are encouraged to apply to the Nottingham Research Fellowships, and there is a recognition that for this staff group there are very specific challenges, namely that career progression is linked to professional accreditation as a Consultant and the co-funding of any post with the NHS Trust. Thus, while the School of Medicine plans to support successful Clinical Fellows strongly at the conclusion of their Fellowship, it is not necessarily able to guarantee a permanent position following the Fellowship.
