Department of Zoology


Senior Research Fellowships in the Department of Zoology provide an amazing opportunity to carry out independent research in a vibrant, stimulating and supportive research environment.

Examples of Senior Research Fellowship schemes are:

Royal Society Dorothy Hodgkin Research Fellowship

Royal Society University Research Fellowship

ERC Starting and Consolidator Grants

Wellcome Career Development Awards Fellowship

We offer a programme of career support that will help you to obtain a Fellowship and establish your independence as an academic researcher, including assistance with setting up your lab, as well as mentoring and training to help you develop your career. Research Fellows will also have access to the comprehensive package of ongoing support available from the School of Biological Sciences.

We hold an open annual competition to find applicants for Fellowships that the Department can actively sponsor.

Here are four good reasons why you should bring a Research Fellowship to our department.
