How to apply
call for applications
We advertise fellowship positions each spring, with an expected start date in autumn of the same year. We normally recruit up to four fellows in each recruitment cycle. The next call for fellowship applications will open in Spring 2024.
Eligibility and selection criteria
The fellowship programme is international and therefore applicants from any country are eligible to apply. We aim to recruit fellows with the potential to become leaders in the field of diabetes and other cardiometabolic diseases in subsequent years.
The key selection criteria for the Postdoctoral Research Fellowships are:
- A PhD/DPhil (completed or close to completion) in a biomedical subject, or other relevant subject, together with skills and experience relevant to biomedical research.
- Will typically have no more than three or four years of postdoctoral experience at the start of the fellowship (Autumn 2023). This condition will be relaxed proportionately for applicants who have had a career break. Please contact us if you would like to discuss your eligibility.
- A strong CV demonstrating competence and success in the thesis research area (and postdoctoral work, if appropriate), e.g. with publications (or papers accepted) in peer reviewed journals, presentations at international meetings, and receiving academic awards/prizes. Evidence will be sought of a deep understanding of the applicant's previous fields of research and evidence of independent intellectual and practical contributions to previous research projects.
