- Posts supported by funded Fellowships (see below and contact Dept well in advance).
The Department has an annual academic job round for a number of Assistant Professorships (Lectureships); available positions will be advertised when confirmed. Links to individual adverts for currently open positions can be found above.
We advertise several junior research positions (postdoc positions = research fellowships) each year. If you would like to work in the Department in such a position, please contact a member of staff in your research area. Some possible sources of funding are listed in the right hand column. See also general information, About the Institute, or contact the Department Secretary if you have particular questions.
Please be sure to contact us in plenty of time before application deadlines. Thank you.
There are several competitive Fellowship schemes to support talented researchers who do not currently have a permanent UK position, for periods of 1-5 years. These are offered by the EPSRC, the Royal Society and by the EU/ERC. All provide a full salary plus support for travel, computing, etc; some, as described below, offer funding for a research team. The person who wishes to hold the Fellowship applies via a nominated host institution (which need not be their current home institution, and some schemes actively encourage or even demand mobility). Warwick has hosted many holders of such Fellowships. We welcome enquiries from anyone considering applying for such Fellowships nominating Warwick as the host institution. Please either contact a relevant member of the academic staff or email the Head of Department giving brief details of the planned application. We need to know well in advance for administrative reasons, but we can also offer help in deciding which scheme is right for you and navigating through the financial and eligibility regulations etc. There are other competitions for more senior fellowships suitable for researchers who already have a permanent position; please contact us if you would like to apply to hold one of these Fellowships in Warwick.
