Fellowship Opportunities

We are keen to attract outstanding researchers in all disciplines from the UK or internationally to join us as Independent Research Fellows and we welcome applications from exceptional candidates with a track record of high impact research.

We can offer a high quality research environment and support for you in any fellowship application process (including advice on the preparation bids and interview technique). Researchers within the College have international reputations and collaborations with researchers throughout the world, making it an exciting environment for both research and teaching.
