Otherwise, members of the laboratory are always willing to help potential candidates write grant proposals and submit them to a variety of funding sources. We encourage you to look at the research page, or even better, individual staff pages, to find someone who matches your interests and then get in touch. If in doubt, contact any of Andreas Kyprianou, Matt Roberts or Hendrik Weber and we will be happy to help.
Possible funding schemes include:
- EPSRC Postdoctoral Fellowships: 3 years
- Newton Fellowships: 2 years with the possibility for follow-up funding up to 10 years, for non-UK citizens working and based outside the UK for at least 1 year by the application deadline and no more than 7 years active full time postdoctoral experience
- The Royal Commission for the Exhibition of 1851 Fellowships: 2 years, for applicants normally with no more than 3 years postdoctoral experience
- Royal Society Dorothy Hodgkin Fellowships: 5 years, for citizens of the EEA or Switzerland who have no more than 6 years postdoctoral experience and require a flexible working pattern due to personal circumstances
