You might be a researcher already based at the University, or thinking about joining us. Our research fellowships give you the opportunity to build and development your research career.
A fellowship is typically where funding is provided to you to support you with time spent researching and expenses required to carry your research out. This is a investment in you and your career.
However, we encourage speculative enquiries for fellowships from a range of different funding opportunities found below.
The first step to make an application is to review the different funding opportunities found below and assess whether applications can be made speculatively with us, or direct to the funder.
You should also review the research on our website and see whether we are a good fit for your area of expertise. You can search by the keyword for your expertise to find the areas we specialise in.
Once you are happy, you should get in touch with the department in which you feel best suited. They will be able to discuss next steps and options for you.
Essex International Visiting Fellowships are prestigious, competitive awards for high performing, established academics and researchers.
