Yusuf Hamied Department of Chemistry


We are keen to support early career researchers wishing to apply for fellowships (such as Royal Society or Research Council fellowships) that will help establish them as independent researchers. For example, senior postdoc Dr Jenny Zhang was awarded a BBSRC David Phillips Fellowship and has now started her own group here. And in the Michaelides group, Dr Venkat Kapil was recently awarded the prestigious Ernest Oppenheimer Research Fellowship.

If you are interested in applying for any fellowship to be held in the Department of Chemistry, please see our guidance notes and follow the instructions for submitting an expression of interest.

Senior fellowships

Due to space limitations in the Department, we will not be supporting any further applications for Senior Fellowships until further notice.  The situation will be kept under review.

Junior fellowships

For junior fellowships (usually a first or second postdoctoral position), applications do not need to go to a panel. Instead we ask applicants to contact potential supervisors to discuss their proposal, and for a member of academic staff to agree to act as supervisor, before approving the application for submission to a sponsor.
