Faculty Research Awards and Fellowships Faculty Research Awards and Fellowships

Funding Opportunities and Initiatives

The Faculty has a number of funding schemes in place to support staff research projects, including a Small Awards Scheme to help develop research publications and our research environment, and one specifically for Early Career Researchers. Full details, including how to apply, are available via the links below. The Associate Dean for Research, Professor Claire Jowitt (c.jowitt@uea.ac.uk) and School Research Directors will be happy to discuss them with you, and answer any questions you may have.

In addition, each year the Faculty supports a number of applications for Leverhulme Early Career Research Fellowships from suitably qualified applicants. In 2016 we were awarded 3 Fellowships. If you are interested in applying for the next round (2017/18), please contact Claire Grasby (c.grasby@uea.ac.uk) Administrative Assistant to the Associate Dean for Research.   

For information about our current research projects, please consult School Research Webpages:

Early Career Researchers' Forum Early Career Researchers' Forum

This new forum is designed to provide a supportive and inclusive environment for colleagues in the early stages of their research career to address career-stage specific issues and share best practice. The forum will meet c.6 times per year over lunch to 'workshop' a specific issue in an informal and encouraging atmosphere, with topics chosen in consultation with its membership. The forum's programme is organised by Professor Claire Jowitt, Associate Dean for Research, (c.jowitt@uea.ac.uk) and includes presentations by invited external speakers (including ECRs) on a particular topic or issue, but the aim is for Early Career Researchers at UEA to develop, through discussion with peers, their personal effectiveness and the skills to ensure the widest impact of their research.

The final session will be an Early Career Research Showcase where members will be invited, if they wish, to give a short presentation (3-5 minutes) on their research. This session will be an open one, which members of the Faculty and University will be invited to attend.

This initiative aims to provide a bespoke career development opportunity and, by meeting at lunchtime, is designed to fit within a 9-5 working day. Sessions will start promptly at 12 noon and finish at 1.30pm (except the Early Career Research Showcase, which runs 12-2pm), with lunch provided, and are not to be held on the same day of the week each time (to enable colleagues to attend at least some sessions). Please note, 'early career researcher' is broadly and inclusively defined for the purposes of membership of this forum: staff on research contracts and on temporary, fractional, and ATS contracts, are warmly invited to attend, as well as FT permanent ATR ECR staff.

Please see the attached schedule for further information on the 2016/17 programme.
