Internal application for Future Leaders Fellowships

The competition for Future Leaders Fellowships is now open. It is aimed at Early Career Researchers and provides postdoctoral funding for 4 years with a possible further extension for 3 years.

The scheme is substantial and highly competitive. We have been requested to operate a demand management system and so there will be two rounds of internal selection before any candidate can submit formally.

The University, as a whole, will be able to submit 4 candidates and each School is asked to nominate up to 4 candidates for the central level selection process.

The School deadline for submission of nominations will be 12th Sept, 4pm.

Please circulate this information to any eligible early career researchers and send completed application forms and associated documents to Fergal Raftery ( by that time.

These will also require a Head of Department statement. See assessment criteria here.

If you have any questions, please contact the Director of Research and Knowledge Exchange, Gurminder K Bhambra (
