Your actual programmes or proposed programme of activities should reflect your prior knowledge and experience and be designed to support your longer-term research career aspirations.
Activities could include but are not limited to:
- producing publications to help establish track record
- engaging with a range of different audiences to communicate research findings
- building networks to develop impact opportunities and inform and support further development
- collaborating with users through an internship or placement to help develop professional and transferrable skills and understanding of users’ organisations, provided they are an integral part of the fellowship
- further training to improve research and related skills
- developing funding applications
- carrying out further limited research (up to 25% of the programme of work) related to your PhD
- teaching, if this is aligned with the wider purposes of the fellowship (up to a maximum of six hours per week)
- research visits to internationally leading research organisations, either in the UK or abroad, for the purposes of research collaboration, training, and access to data or other resources not available at your host organisation
Fellowships must be held at a research organisation that is part of a DTP and aligned to an accredited subject area.
We welcome applications from both single disciplines and combinations of disciplines, but the fellowship activities must be based at least 50% within the social sciences.
The duration of this award is up to one year full-time, or up to two years part-time.
Fellowships must start on 1 October 2024 (we will consider requests for later start dates in exceptional circumstances, please speak to your DTP to discuss this further).
