EPSRC Research Fellowship Scheme
EPSRC offers a range of fellowships to support the next generation of leading researchers across the postdoctoral, early and established career stages. The fields of research covered need to be linked to the EPSRC strategic priority areas. Current fellowship areas can be found on the EPSRC web site. There is an on-going process to identify the areas supported by fellowships and priority areas will be updated throughout the EPSRC Delivery Plan period. Applicants are expected to hold a PhD or have equivalent research experience; however, there are no eligibility rules based on years of post-doctoral experience or whether you hold (or do not hold) a permanent academic position. There are no nationality restrictions imposed by EPSRC and applications are welcomed from candidates who wish to re-establish themselves after a career break or other period of absence from active research.

The Leverhulme Trust offers a number of Fellowships each year, including Early Career Fellowships to support postdoctoral research and a range of Fellowships for experienced researchers. Details of the individual schemes can be found on the Trust’s web site.
