Our Birmingham Fellows

Our sector-leading Birmingham Fellowship programme offers five years of protected time for high-quality research, allowing outstanding, high potential, early-career researchers of all ages to establish themselves as rounded academics who will go on to excel in their academic discipline across research, teaching and wider citizenship. 

We welcome our 11 new Birmingham Fellows who have joined the College of Medical and Dental Sciences in the 2017-18 academic year from a variety of backgrounds. Their research will impact the lives of people regionally, nationally and globally.
