Postdoctoral opportunities

IRRU has hosted several post-doctoral and early career fellows and has a strong tradition in mentoring colleagues: we are glad that so many leading professors and experts in industrial relations across the globe started their career with us. We welcome contacts to prepare joint applications for early career schemes such as Marie Skłodowska Curie Early Stage Researcher Fellowships, Leverhulme Trust Early Career Fellowships, and British Academy Postdoctoral Fellowships. For more information, contact the Director or any member of the Unit with research interests close to the proposed project.
