University Research Fellowships
City University London, UK

Scholarship / Financial aid: 33,884 offered as salary

Date: two years

Deadline: 9th July 2012

Open to: candidates in relevant areas who do not have a PhD and/or are newly developing a research career

Announcement follows

Led by the Vice-Chancellor, Professor Paul Curran, the University has embarked on a strategic transformation to strengthen still further its position as a leading global University through the investment of up to 200M in research-excellent academic staff, information systems and its estate.

The University is now inviting applications for five postdoctoral Research Fellow positions, one to be appointed in each of the groupings indicated below. These posts are full-time, fixed-term for two years and aimed at those at an early stage in their academic careers (for example those just finishing their PhD (or other equivalent doctorate studies) and those within 3 years of finishing their PhD) able to demonstrate strong academic potential through publication.

Applications are also welcome from candidates in relevant areas who do not have a PhD and/or are newly developing a research career and who can demonstrate that they meet the appointment criteria. The Fellowship scheme is not designed, however, to support academic staff who are eligible to seek other sources of funding for their research or whose development can be supported through sabbaticals and other routes.

University Research Fellows will be expected to undertake original work and publish their findings. Fellows may also be expected to undertake a strictly limited amount of teaching (in line with external Fellowship schemes, no more than 6 hours per week on teaching and/or teaching-related duties).

Candidates should submit an original research proposal that covers one or more of the following areas:

_Cass Business School

_Schools of Arts and Social Sciences

_Schools of Engineering & Mathematical Sciences and Informatics

_School of Health Sciences

_The City Law School

Selection criteria
Candidates will be considered against the following criteria:

_Demonstrable excellence or potential for excellence in research, particularly through high quality publication;
_The fit of the proposed research with the relevant School's research strengths;
_The potential for the research to be continued beyond the period of the Fellowship and (where appropriate) to attract research funding.

Application procedure

Applications must be made online. The application must include a brief description of the proposed research. This should be no longer than 1,000 words, must be written by the candidate themselves and should set out a clear proposal for the research to be undertaken by the candidate during the Fellowship, including a strategy for publication. Candidates will not gain any advantage by providing excess documentation.

Candidates must identify the relevant School to host their research when submitting their application and are strongly advised to make contact informally in advance to establish that their research proposal fits the School's research interests.

Salary: 33,884

Closing date for applications: 9th July 2012
