If you are an ambitious and talented researcher exploring your options for an externally funded Research Fellowship, such as the Fellowship schemes supported by the Research Councils UK, a Leverhulme Early Career Fellowship or a British Academy Postdoctoral Fellowship we would love to hear from you.

We can offer you a vibrant research community in which you can develop and flourish alongside researchers from across disciplines, who work on projects ranging from fundamental research to applied work that has an impact on society in the UK and internationally. As our Research with Us pages explain, our specialist team can support you through the application process. 

You may choose to bring your Fellowship to one of the Research Centres linked to the Faculty of Social Science, including the Centre for Competition Policy, Centre for Behavioural and Experimental Social Science, Centre for Research on Children and Families and the Water Security Research Centre or to one of our Schools of Study.

The Faculty of Social Sciences does not offer funding to Research Fellowships, but all the Schools within the Faculty welcome Visiting Researchers. Please take some time to explore our pages and do get in touch with the Director of Research in the School if you would like to take the conversation further.

For an informal conversation about how we can help you to bring your Research Fellowship to the Faculty of Social Sciences please contact the Associate Dean for Research, Professor Maren Duvendack.

If you decide you would like to apply to hold your Fellowship at UEA we can help you prepare your application to funders by:

  • Introducing you to relevant academic staff who are leaders in your research area;
  • Advising on different funding schemes and their suitability to your career stage;
  • Providing feedback on drafts of your proposal;
  • Assisting in the costing of your proposal and planning budgets.

If you have already secured a Fellowship, we are also happy to discuss whether transferring it to UEA would be a good idea.

Once you are here we will:

  • Integrate you into the relevant School and research community;
  • Provide mentoring from a senior colleague, who will support you to build a network;
  • Manage your research contract, budget and purchasing;
  • Support you with writing and submitting further funding proposals;
  • Provide opportunities to gain teaching experience;
  • Support you with your next step and advise you on progression to a permanent academic position.

For information on Fellowships funded by UEA please see the UEA Research Fellowship pages.
