Career Management

Postdoctoral Research Positions and Fellowships (Sciences/Social Sciences)

1/2 day

This half-day event will discuss what postdoctoral research positions and postdoctoral fellowships are and how they fit into an academic career. Information will be provided on what sorts of fellowships are available within the UK and overseas, as well as how to find them and how to apply. Personal insights from current and former postdocs will be provided on applying for postdoc positions and fellowships as well as the costs and benefits of working in such positions overseas. Through attendance, you will:

  • find out what is involved in applying for a postdoctoral position or fellowship
  • gain insight into the impact that your first postdoc position can have on subsequent career plans and funding applications
  • learn how to identify postdoctoral positions and funding opportunities through Research Professional and EURAXESS

This session will be most relevant to those in the sciences and social sciences. Humanities researchers may wish to attend ‘Developing an Academic Career’, ‘Academic Job Applications & Interviews’ and ‘Planning Your Research Trajectory’.
