The EPSRC Doctoral Prize Fellowship scheme is intended to help universities recruit and retain the very best newly qualified doctoral (eg PhD, EngD) students, and help them launch careers in research.
UCL is currently inviting applications for Fellows to start in May 2021.
Fellowships may be held in any Faculty or Department within UCL, provided that the research proposed lies within the EPSRC Themes and Research Areas . The list of UCL Faculty websites may help you to find more information and contact details for their constituent departments.
We particularly encourage applications from Black, Asian, and Minority Ethnic candidates, who are currently under-represented within UCL at this level.
Any student who received EPSRC funding support during their doctoral study (DTP, DTP-CASE, I-CASE, CDT, and CDT incorporated) at a UK institution is eligible to apply.
The award requires the Fellow to have submitted their thesis prior to the start of the award. Candidates who have not yet submitted their thesis at the time of application are still eligible, but they must have submitted their thesis prior to the Fellowship start date, and the supervisor’s letter of support must clearly state the expected submission date. Where the PhD viva has not taken place before the start of the Fellowship, the outcome must be an outright pass or pass with minor corrections otherwise the Fellowship offer will be withdrawn.
Applicants who finished their funded studentship period or submitted their thesis for examination (whichever is earlier) before 20-jan-2020 are NOT eligible.
Fellowships can be up to 2 years in duration. As newly qualified Postdoctoral Researchers, Fellows will be appointed to Grade 7 point 29 on the UCL salary scale. Non-salary costs are available for research expenses (e.g. facilities use, consumables), travel (e.g. visits to collaborators, conferences), and outreach activities (e.g. public engagement, knowledge transfer). A guide figure for non-salary costs is £10k per annum (p.a.). However, as the requested costs should be appropriate to the proposed project, some related costs would be expected to be below £10k p.a. and higher costs can be given when justified.
How to Apply
For full details on how to apply, please click on the 'Apply' button above. Prospective applicants should ensure they contact their proposed host department for support in submitting their application.
All applications must be submitted by 14:00 on 20-Jan-2021.
