We offer support for all staff involved in and supporting research fellowship applications. If you are considering a fellowship application we have a range of self-guided resources and workshops for you to attend. We partner with RIS to support fellowship schemes for individual funders and will provide feedback on sections of your application.
You may also find the other sections of this website relevant.
Are you ready to make an application for funding and take the next steps towards becoming an independent researcher? These resources can help you decide if you are at the right stage in your career and most importantly, if you will be considered competitive when judged by external peer review, before you submit to the University’s internal selection process.
In addition to the self-guide we offer a workshop to discuss the criteria in more detail and answer any questions you may have. It also helps you to start building your person specification or track record, and to identify potential gaps in your experience so you can start to address them.
Your application is more than your case for support outlining your research idea and project. All fellowships are looking for evidence of your research leadership potential. What you can already evidence, and where or how you will develop those skills you cannot?
You will have to include:
We have a range of guides and resources to help you to consider the areas above as you write your proposal. There are also drop-in Q&A sessions throughout the year.
The next step is the interview process, we have complied a range of resources based on information from people interviewing and being interviewed. You can also arrange a mock fellowship interview.
In partnership with RIS we provide support for all aspects of your proposal including track records/resume for researchers, CVs, impact and development. These sessions are for applicants that have been selected through their faculty internal review process. Fellowship support includes workshops, one-to-ones and an internal peer review.
