Fernandes Fellowships

Supported by a generous donation to the University, the Fernandes Fellowships aim to develop lasting research collaborations between Warwick and Europe. Applications are now open for the second cohort of fellows.

Scheme Objectives

The Fellowships will allow those in research, tenure-track or early academic positions at European institutions to undertake a three-month visit to Warwick (possibly split over two or three visits) in order to develop long-term research collaborations by participating in a specific program of research and scholarship with their host and other collaborators, and engaging with the wider Warwick research community.

The Fernandes Fellowships are open to researchers working in all subject areas, however applicants working in the following research fields are particulary welcomed:

  • Human disease, particularly reproductive health, antimicrobial resistance, cancer and ageing
  • Data, artificial intelligence and associated ethics
  • Economics, management, behavioural science and governance
  • Energy, sustainability, and circular economy
  • Analytical technologies for healthcare, life science and the environment

The programme will run until December 2021 and in total 25 Fellowships are available over the three years of the programme.

The Fellowships will allow those in research, tenure-track or early academic positions at European institutions to undertake a three-month visit to Warwick (possibly split over two or three visits) in order to develop long-term research collaborations by participating in a specific program of research and scholarship with their host and other collaborators, and engaging with the wider Warwick research community.
