Doctoral Prize fellowships are 2 years in duration.They cover the applicant's salary for 2 years as well as research-related costs.All documents should be written in font size 11 or above (Arial or Times New Roman) with 2cm margins all around.
We are looking to provide opportunities for candidates who anticipate applying for prestigious fellowships (for example, those offered by the Royal Academy of Engineering, EPSRC or the Royal Society) and would benefit from a further two years' funding before making such applications.
Calls for applications are held every 6 months with closing dates in December and June.
Depending on demand, it may be necessary to pre-select a subset of candidates for interview based on the documents submitted.
The criteria used by the panel to select successful candidates will be as follows: Applications should be submitted via email to the Doctoral Training Manager, Dr Helen Jones ([email protected]) by on 11th June 2019.
Fellows should propose a project which, although can build on their Ph D studies, should constitute a new and discrete programme of work.
Doctoral Prize awardees are expected to apply for further fellowship funding, from external sources, within the duration of their award.
Host Departments should nominate a suitable mentor for each successful fellow, who will be their first point of contact for all matters relating to their personal and professional development as an independent researcher.
The fellow's salary will be calculated based on the standard UCL starting salary for postdoctoral researchers.
The EPSRC Doctoral Prize scheme supports fellowships of two years' duration for exceptional researchers who have recently finished an EPSRC-funded Ph D.
UCL has approximately 10 awards to make every year.
