Throughout your Fellowship, we will provide financial support for 3 years, including a highly competitive salary, and a generous budget for research and travel expenses. You will be supported by world leading academic staff, receive training, career support and development opportunities from the Postdoc and Fellows Development Centre, whilst working in a dynamic environment, with exposure to policy making and ground-breaking innovation.
