We are delighted to be launching our brand new Fellowship scheme, NUAcT (Newcastle University Academic Track) which offers five-year, well-resourced Fellowships in any discipline, leading to faculty appointments. Beginning in 2019, we are recruiting 100 new Fellows over the next five years.
Newcastle University is a world-class research-intensive university, advancing knowledge, providing creative solutions and solving global problems. We believe that the major challenges of the future will be answered by teams that are diverse in career stage, career pathway, disciplinary background, experience and personal characteristics and that Newcastle University is ideally placed to build such teams. We are determined to be inclusive and we offer a supportive and welcoming environment to all of our staff.
We are looking to recruit a diverse cohort of investigators with the talent and motivation to become future research and academic leaders in their field. As a Fellow at Newcastle University, you will develop your career in exciting working environments, you will be provided with a high level of dedicated time for research, have the freedom to develop your research interests and gain access to our cutting-edge facilities. We are an anchor institution in a vibrant city and work closely with external partners, conducting research that benefits our region, our country and the world. Our international research is facilitated by having physical bases in four locations (Newcastle, London, Singapore and Malaysia).
Who can apply?
We are looking for applicants who have the potential to develop into independent research investigators. You must have a relevant PhD (or equivalent) and postdoctoral experience, a track record of high quality research, and be aspiring to apply for externally funded fellowships or other major grant awards. Your research interest should align with Newcastle University’s research portfolio.
