Fellowship opportunities

Many of our academic staff members in the Functional Molecules and Assemblies Research Section started their independent research career on prestigious Fellowships (EPSRC; Royal Society University Research Fellowship; Royal Society of Edinburgh Fellowship; Leverhulme Trust Fellowship and Lord Kelvin Adam Smith Fellowship). 

If you are interested in applying for a fellowship or any other award, please send your CV and brief outline of the research you would like to carry out in Glasgow to the Head of Section. You should not underestimate how long it takes to submit a grant, so contact us well before the expected deadline for application.

Information about the various types of Fellowship, the application procedure and typical closing dates, can be found via the following links:

  • Royal Society of Edinburgh Fellowships (Typical deadline: Mid February)
  • Marie Curie Fellowships (Typical deadline: Depending on Scheme individual early September)
  • Leverhulme Trust

Before applying for a Postdoctoral Research Fellowship you should identify and approach a potential mentor within the group. Your mentor will discuss with you your choice of Fellowship scheme, your project and offer you guidance and advice. For processing the costing and submission of your Fellowship you should contact the Grants Team at grants@glasgow.ac.uk. They will be able to advise you on the specific rules that govern each Fellowship scheme including eligible costs and funding level. Note that all applications must be approved by the relevant Head of School, including outline applications. Please allow plenty of time for discussion and never submit your application until approval has been obtained.
