We regularly have openings at the PhD and postdoc level to be held in one of our research groups. These will be announced as and when available.


We welcome applications from highly qualified applicants seeking to hold external fellowships with us. These can be very competitive and we encourage applicants to submit internal applications to the department first, which will undergo a pre-selection. The internal deadlines vary with the fellowship, please enquire with a faculty member closest to your area of interest for further detail.

An internal application consists of a CV (including details of references), an up-to-date publication list, and a preliminary version of your research proposal.

A partial list of fellowships that can be held in our department follows below. This list is not exhaustive, if there are other national or international fellowships you would like to propose being hosted here, please get in touch.
