Postdoctoral Research Fellowships (UK and Overseas)
This session will explain what a postdoctoral fellowship is, how it fits into an academic career, what sorts of fellowships are available within the UK and overseas, and how such positions are funded. Information will be provided on application methods, timetables, preparation and how to apply. Insights will be provided into what makes a good application and current postdoctoral fellows will highlight some of the benefits and challenges of being a postdoc. The session will also consider the longer term implications of taking a postdoctoral fellowship for both academic and non-academic career choices.
NB: This session is offered in alternate years. You may wish to attended the separate session on 'Academic Jobs Overseas' which is offered annually.
