ESRC-funded Postdoctoral Longitudinal Fellowships

27 July 2016

The ESRC and

Unicef workers helping children closer.ac.uk/" target="_blank">CLOSER are pleased to announce a call for Postdoctoral Longitudinal Fellowships as part of the Global Challenges Research Fund.

The deadline for applications is Friday 9 September 2016 at 4pm.

The Longitudinal Studies Fellowships are designed to provide Fellows with the opportunity to deepen their knowledge of UK and international longitudinal studies and their respective environments, and to develop an understanding of the issues and opportunities involved in research that looks across and between studies in different countries within a development context.

Longitudinal Studies Fellows will spend time at one or more UK CLOSER studies, as appropriate to their fellowship, and at CLOSER to build a well-networked cohort of fellows. Fellows will also be expected to spend time with relevant overseas studies and/or stakeholders.

Applicants must have graduated with PhDs from the research organisation(s) (RO), which make up the DTCs participating in the pilot GCRF Fellowship Scheme (the South West, North West, Oxford, Bloomsbury, UCL, and Scottish DTCs) or those universities that host CLOSER studies (Bristol, Essex and Southampton).
