Nottingham Advance Research Fellowship 2010 - CALL FOR POSTDOCS

Applications are invited for this new Postdoctoral Fellowship competition, funded by the University of Nottingham . The Fellowships are targeted at excellent postdoctoral researchers in any academic area represented at the University. Fellowships are being offered to start in October 2010.

As this scheme offers a recognised first step into an independent research career, candidates must have submitted a PhD (viva does not need to have taken place) and have had no more than six years full-time postdoctoral experience by 1 October 2009. 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 be included in the total amount of postdoctoral experience. Part-time work would 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.

Each fellowship offers:

• Two years independent funding to conduct research while based at the University of Nottingham .

• Participation in a mentoring scheme, and career advice as required.

Subjects covered:

All academic areas represented at the University of Nottingham
