Independent Research Fellows

Develop your independent research career at the University of Warwick

We are keen to attract outstanding researchers from all Chemistry disciplines to join our community as Independent Research Fellows, and we welcome applications from exceptional UK-based or international candidates with a track record of high impact research.

The Department of Chemistry provides a dynamic environment where cutting-edge research is facilitated by excellent facilities with state-of-the-art equipment and specialist technical support. Our community includes internationally recognised academics and research leaders who are undertaking high quality research that advances the understanding of their field and also has wider benefits to society and the economy.

The Department has a long tradition of hosting Independent Research Fellows, many of whom have gone on to academic positions, either in Warwick or elsewhere.

We will support outstanding candidates in the following ways:

  • Identifying an appropriate funding scheme
  • Preparation of your Fellowship application
  • Mock Fellowship Interview
  • Mentoring and support during your Fellowship

We welcome discussions with potential applicants who would like to join the Department’s research community. This includes individuals who would like to apply for a fellowship, or those who have recently secured fellowship funding but feel that moving to Warwick would be beneficial for their career development.

Informal queries should be sent to the Chair of Research Committee, Greg Challis g.l.challis@warwick.ac.uk.
