ESRC Postdoctoral Fellowship Applications are now open. Applicants of all nationalities are eligible to apply for this fellowship.
The fellowships aim to support researchers wishing to study at any of the SWDTP’s five partner institutions through developing publications, networks and research and professional skills.
The South West Doctoral Training Partnership (SWDTP), which is primarily funded by the Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC), was developed to improve postgraduate training, through sharing innovation and best practice across disciplinary and interdisciplinary fields. It is also committed to building on the collaborative potential that is central to social sciences research and practice. The partnership offers funding and support to Social Science researchers. The SWDTP also facilitates partnerships between organisations and researchers. Our students have completed placements with organisations, charities and research groups large and small so get in touch if you’d like to create a partnership with our students!
