Winning a prestigious research council, European or charity-funded postdoctoral fellowship provides an excellent start to an academic career. The University of Kent is keen to support well-qualified postdoctoral researchers, from the UK and overseas, who wish to develop their career through a fellowship at Kent. The University offers state-of the art research facilities on its Canterbury and Medway campuses and is committed to developing its research fellows into the academics of the future, through its highly popular Early Career Researcher Network and Grants Factory programmes.
The Faculty of Sciences research staff includes three current and ten previous postdoctoral fellows and we wish to increase this number. Fellows would receive a minimum annual salary of £31,400, increasing upon experience, plus benefits.

- BBSRC David Phillips fellowships
