To further enhance its academic base, the Faculty of Science is recruiting University of Bath Prize Fellows to strengthen and develop existing research excellence. The school is welcoming applications across 13 research areas, one of which is neurodevelopment and neurodegeneration, and we will make six appointments.

About the Prize Fellowship: The fellowship offers early stage researchers the opportunity to join a cohort of like-minded rising research stars. These two-year research fellowships in priority research areas are part of a scheme intended to fast-track fellows to a permanent appointment at Bath. Alumni of the scheme have become scientific leaders, progressing rapidly within the university to senior lecturer, reader, and professor.

The fellows will have the opportunity to:

  • conduct high-quality research as an independent researcher, including securing funding via research grants and/or fellowship applications and building a research group appropriate to the academic department and discipline;
  • develop international research links;
  • contribute to advanced undergraduate teaching and supervision, training and research of graduate students;
  • promote research in the discipline, including public engagement.
