Birmingham Fellows: Full Circle

Birmingham Fellows: Full Circle

The University of Birmingham is committed to attracting the brightest and the best from around the world to develop their academic careers at Birmingham as Birmingham Fellows.

Birmingham Fellows are appointed to a permanent academic post, and have five years with protected time for high-quality research. This will allow these outstanding, high potential, early career researchers of any age to establish themselves as rounded academics who will go on to make a full and excellent contribution to research, teaching and academic citizenship. 

'Birmingham Fellows: Full Circle' sees the Fellows themselves interviewing one another, showcasing their research and real-world impact as they position themselves among the next generation of leading Birmingham academics.
