Applications for externally- or self-funded PhD or MSc (research) positions are welcomed at any time through this portal. For postdoctoral positions within FMG, do get in touch with the relevant academic to discuss support for applying for external funds. We are keen to support applications including those for Rutherford Fellowships, Marie Skłodowska-Curie Individual Fellowships, Newton mobility grantsRoyal Commission for the Exhibition of 1851 Fellowships, or Sir Henry Wellcome Postdoctoral Fellowships, or other schemes which may be available to you.
