Loughborough University: Loughborough University launches recruitment for prestigious Doctoral Prize Fellowship scheme

Loughborough University is now recruiting for the fourth cohort of its prestigious and popular Doctoral Prize Fellowship programme.

The scheme, which offers 24 months of tailored support to recently completed doctoral students, is open to outstanding early career researchers from all around the world, including those already at Loughborough University.

Fellows will be based at Loughborough University (in the Midlands or London) and will undertake work derived from their own research questions and ideas, which will be the foundation for an externally-funded Fellowship application to be made during the course of the Fellowship.

Candidates should be within three years of the date of their PhD award and must have had their PhD (or equivalent doctoral qualification) awarded by the application closing date (1 September 2022).

Loughborough University values diversity and is committed to creating a positive, inclusive community. We particularly wish to encourage applications from people from BAME communities, women, those with a disability and other under-represented groups. Applications from those who wish to work part-time are also welcome.

As part of the University’s broader response to the ongoing war in Ukraine, Ukrainian candidates will have priority for one of the Fellowships.

There are 10 positions available, across our nine Schools. Further information including application instructions can be found online.

Professor Steve Rothberg, Pro Vice-Chancellor (Research) said: “We are delighted to launch the recruitment campaign for our fourth cohort of Doctoral Prize Fellows. We are strategically committed to supporting early career researchers at Loughborough and this inclusive scheme offers a comprehensive career development package for ambitious researchers who have recently completed a PhD.”
