Research Fellowship Opportunities

The School of Environmental Sciences hosts numerous staff members awarded prestigious personal fellowships in the past and is strongly committed to attracting and retaining more fellows in the future. Fellowships are available for those at all stages in their research careers and can be particularly effective in establishing the careers of early-stage researchers.    

In the School of Environmental Sciences, we will actively support interested applicants in submitting bids to the relevant organisations and will then work with them to maximise their research and wider career potential during the course of the award.

Sources of fellowships obtaining by current members of staff include NERC, EPSRC, ERC, and the Leverhulme Trust. These recipients and other members of staff who have sat on various fellowship selection panels are happy to provide expert advice on the application process to prospective candidates.

If you are interested in applying for a fellowship to be based at Liverpool now or in the future, or if you are interested in moving an existing fellowship to Liverpool, then we would like to hear from you.  

What Schemes are available?

More information regarding the process and ideal timelines for fellowship development within the school can be found here.


The deadlines for many of these schemes are just once per year and the applications can take a long time to prepare - so get in touch at the earliest opportunity. If you know an existing staff member who you would like to work with, then you can contact them directly.  If not, or if you have any general enquiries, then please contact James Lea.
