Newcastle University NUAcT (NU Academic Track Fellowships) Second annual Open Call for NUAcT Fellowships



This year's closing date is 6 March 2020. We sometimes also offer targeted fellowships in specific areas which can be advertised at any point in the year. If you would like to keep up to date with what positions are currently being advertised please join our mailing list.


Who can apply?

Our NUAcT Fellows are talented early career researchers from a range of backgrounds who bring with them a wealth of experience in research, outreach, teaching and more. This round we are also welcoming applications from clinicians - click here for further details.

Because our cohort spans such a broad disciplinary reach, it is difficult to say what makes a ‘typical’ NUAcT Fellow. What they all have in common is a passion for their research and for developing a cohesive and positive research environment. They have an appetite for exploring ways of working across boundaries and the motivation and talent to carry out research that can have a real and meaningful impact.

In addition to a relevant PhD (or equivalent experience), successful candidates will have a distinctive and exciting research vision and will have already started to generate a compelling track-record of achievements in research.
