New Prize Fellows scheme

As part of our 50th Anniversary celebrations, the University is pleased to announce a new 50th Anniversary Prize Fellows scheme.

The original programme was established in 2012 with the aim of enabling early career academics to get a flying start to their research careers.

Prize Fellows start with two years research time and development activities as part of a cohort, and then move on to the usual probationary requirements for academic staff.

Jane Millar, outgoing Pro-Vice-Chancellor (Research), said: "The existing Prize Fellow scheme has attracted excellent young researchers to join our community and they have certainly made their mark over the past three years. Another round of investment is a testament to their successes."

There will be 18 posts and recruitment will start early in the next academic year.

There will be posts across the three Faculties and to support the Institute for Policy Research, the Institute for Mathematical Innovation, and the Milner Centre for Evolution. There will also be 50th Anniversary investment in the School of Management, with the aim of increasing their postgraduate research activity.

Jonathan Knight, who takes up the role of Pro-Vice-Chancellor (Research) from 1 August, will be working with Deans to recruit the new posts.  He said: "Investing in the future is one of the themes for our 50th Anniversary celebrations and this scheme provides an exciting opportunity to further grow our research strength. We will be seeking to attract real research talent and ambition."
