The South West Doctoral Training Partnership invites applications for the ESRC Postdoctoral Fellowships at SWDTP Institutions for the 2023/24 academic session.
The objective of this call is to provide support to those who are in the immediate postdoctoral stage of their career. This is to support them in consolidating their PhD, and to prepare them for the next stage of their research careers. For the majority this is likely to be a research career in academia. However, those with a clearly articulated programme of activities to support their transition to a research career outside of academia will also be considered. For instance, a researcher in public, private, or civil society organizations.
Worth of Award
The total cost for each fellowship can include the following:
- Fellow’s salary costs
- Indirect costs
- Estate costs
- Up to a maximum of £10,000 for all other costs. This includes costs such as mentoring costs, travel and subsistence, conference attendance, training, and fieldwork, for example.
To be eligible applicants must:
- Have been awarded a PhD or have passed their viva voce with minor amendments by the application deadline March 23rd, 2023. They must also have been awarded their PhD by the fellowship start date of October 1st, 2023.
- Have no more than 12 months active postdoctoral experience since passing their viva voce (allowing for career breaks) by March 23rd, 2023. The period of active post-doctoral experience should be calculated from the viva voce being passed to the closing date of March 23rd, 2023.

All applicants must submit a completed proposal along with the required attachments in one collated PDF document to the SWDTP at [email protected]
