Research Fellowships

The CAPS group encourages applications from external candidates whose research interests overlap with those of the group for postdoctoral research fellowships to be hosted in Canterbury. These can be a useful stepping stone into a permanent academic position in the department. Links to the relevant fellowships can be found below and potential applicants should check the eligibility criteria.

The school can only support a limited number of applications for each fellowship and so in cases where we have a number of potential applicants there will be an internal selection process. To be considered for these fellowship please supply a CV (2 pages), a summary of research interests (1/2 page), an outline of the research to be undertaken including synergies with the group (1 page), a full publication list and metrics. This material should be sent to the Dr James Urquhart.
