We offer an attractive and flexible fellowship scheme for potential fellows who are competitive for external fellowships, or independent research fellows who have substantive external funding.

For fellows who can attract 4 to 5 years of external funding (on qualifying schemes), the Faculty will fund 1 to 2 years additional support at the end of their fellowship. For outstanding candidates the Faculty will provide 1 to 2 years funding prior to fellowship submission.

The Faculty’s research spans the entire spread of life sciences from molecules to cells to organisms and environmental sciences. The world-class research in our Faculty is organised into 13 interconnected areas and we are recruiting in any of these, see:

The Faculty has an enduring record of recruiting outstanding scientists to undertake fellowships in Manchester, with an excellent track record in developing independent fellows into permanent academic members of staff.
