14 ESRC Postdoctoral Fellowship Scheme
15 Background The scheme is part of the ESRC s strategy to support early career researchers It will be delivered through ESRC s national network of DTPs and CDTs The scheme aims to provide support to those who are within 12 months of completing their PhD, to support them in consolidating their PhD, and prepare them for the next stage of their research careers. 4 fellowships are available at Cambridge Possibility of a fifth fellowship we await confirmation!
16 Aims and Scope Fellows are not expected to undertake major new research during a grant. However, limited additional research directly linked to the PhD can be undertaken. The Fellowship does not have to be directly building on the work of the PhD; however, it does need to follow on or be related to it. The programme of activities should provide the fellows with time to maximise the impact of their PhD, which could include communicating the research findings arising from their doctoral work, building international networks to develop impact and further research, collaborating with users, learning the skills of writing for publication, and further improving their research and related skills. A limited amount of teaching could be beneficial to the professional development of the fellows so grant holders are permitted to spend a maximum of six hours per week (pro rata) teaching including preparation time.
17 Eligibility Applicants must have completed their PhD at a research organisation that is part of an ESRC DTP or ESRC CDT there are 73 eligible institutions in total Applicants do not have to have held an ESRC-funded studentship in order to be eligible to apply All Cambridge ESRC Postdoctoral Fellowships must be held within one of the Cambridge ESRC DTP s 26 participating Departments (i.e. pathways) Unlike ESRC DTP studentships, fellowships they are not limited to Home and EU applicants Applicants must have no more than 12 months of active postdoctoral experience At the point of application, applicants must have been awarded a PhD or have submitted their thesis and passed their viva voce (subject to minor corrections) Applications from those returning to research following a career break are welcomed
18 Funding amount The total cost for each fellowship can include the following: Fellow s salary costs Indirect costs Estate costs Up to 10,000 of other costs (to include costs such as mentoring costs, travel and subsistence, conference attendance, training, and fieldwork, for example). No other costs are permitted. The ESRC will meet 80% of full Economic Cost (fec) Applicants will need the support of Departmental Research Grants Administrators in preparing applications. To compile the financial information required, an X5 (left in draft state) should be utilised
19 Mentors All Fellows are required to have a mentor based within their respective research departments The mentor should not normally be the applicant s PhD supervisor Mentors would normally be at Professorial, Reader or Senior Lecturer level, or an experienced lecturer. Ideally a mentor will have 3 years experience as a PI or PhD supervisor, or have experience of supporting postdocs. Dedicated Mentor area on the website:
