Three postdoctoral bid writing awards worth £1,600 each are available to early career scholars within 12 months of the award of a doctorate and who do not yet hold a permanent academic job. Funding is for four weeks of writing time, to enable the candidate to work on a postdoctoral application to a funder/s of their choice, in an area of study that contributes to the research environment at the School of International Development where the postdoctoral fellowship will be held. More information on research in the School can be found: http://www.uea.ac.uk/devresearch/home
Successful candidates will be supported by an appropriate member of staff, that has been identified by the applicant. Should the application be successful in attracting funding, the award holder will complete the funded research project with the School of International Development.
