This looks like an interesting opportunity for PhD graduates of Bath, Bristol or Exeter universities.
The Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC) is pleased
to announce a call for Postdoctoral Fellowships as part of the Global
Challenges Research Fund (GCRF).
The Global Challenges Research Fund is a £1.5 billion
funding stream to support cutting-edge research which addresses the problems
faced by developing countries. GCRF forms part of the UK's Official Development
Assistance (ODA) commitment, and will be awarded according to official ODA
guidelines. GCRF will address global challenges through disciplinary and interdisciplinary
research, strengthen capability for research and innovation within both UK
and developing countries, and will provide an agile response to emergencies where
there is an urgent research need. Capacity
development is an important aspect of GCRF and this fellowships scheme aims
to directly address this.
Proposals should be submitted to the
relevant DTC by 16.00 on 9 September
N.B. Applicants must have graduated with a PhD from one of the research organisations (ROs) which make up the SWDTC (the Universities of Bath, Bristol and Exeter).
