Academic Track Fellowships - Newcastle, UK

Newcastle University, UK, is offering Academic Track Fellowships.


The NUAcT (Newcastle University Academic Track) Fellowship programme offers five year, well resourced, academic-track Fellowships in any discipline. Beginning in 2019, they are recruiting 100 new Fellows over the next five years.

You’ll be a researcher with the talent and motivation to develop into a future research and academic leader in your field.


The fellowships offer five years' salary (£40,792 - £48,676) on an initial fixed term appointment with expected progression to an open-ended faculty contract, subject to formal review after three to four years. In addition, you will receive start-up costs and ongoing research expenses (up to £50k, subject to research programme needs), as well as funding for a PhD student associated with your research project and dedicated mentors with world-class expertise and significant research management experience.

All fellowships are flexible and accommodate parental and other caring responsibilities. Fellowships will be extended to take account of periods of parental or extended leave and to accommodate part-time working. Additional mentorship and support is given to those returning to their fellowships. Newcastle University understands that individuals have different needs and will tailor our support package around these.

Newcastle University is committed to the development of a fully inclusive University community. They recruit and retain staff and students from all sectors of society, and recognise the value and importance of developing diverse teams.

Responsibilities and requirements

The Fellowships focus on research excellence and attracting external research funding. Your teaching responsibilities will be minimal for the first three years, but an aptitude and enthusiasm for teaching is desirable. You’ll have the track record and creativity to develop into an independent researcher. You must have a relevant PhD (or equivalent), postdoctoral experience, a track record of high quality research, eligibility for external funding and aspirations to apply for externally funded fellowships or other major grant awards.
