Are you a future research leader?
The Faculty of Medical Sciences (FMS) at Newcastle University is committed to recruiting and mentoring early career researchers who have demonstrated the potential to be future research leaders in their field. We are offering an exciting new fellowship opportunity for a postdoctoral researcher with the ambition and track record to develop into an independent research investigator in the field of health inequalities and the social determinants of health.
You will typically have at least three years of active postdoctoral experience. Your CV and publication track record will clearly demonstrate scientific excellence and an ability to innovate which, with the help of our dedicated mentorship scheme, can be expected to lead to funding of your science by research councils, major charities, and industry. You will be supported and resourced to establish your own independent research team and, if successful in growing and sustaining an internationally competitive group, can expect to be offered an open-ended faculty appointment at the end of the fellowship term.
Competitive start-up packages are available. You will have a PhD in the subject area, an excellent publication record, and be highly competitive and eligible for prestigious externally funded fellowships. Career breaks will be taken into account.
If you already have external funding that you can bring to Newcastle, we would welcome hearing from you. In these circumstances you would be considered for fast tracking.
Visit our fellowship pages for further information about our fellowships and how to apply.
