Tags: Postdoc fellowship | UK | Edinburgh | 2019Calls

Application Deadline: 30 April 2019

The TRAIN@Ed Programme for 3-year Postdoctoral Research Fellowships is open to researchers, who plan to develop and implement an independent research project. TRAIN@Ed features a collaboration between an academic partner at the University of Edinburgh and a non-academic partner, for example, an industrial research partner or civil society organisation.

The call is open to researchers in the early stage of their research career, who have completed their PhD or have 4 years of research experience at the time of the call deadline. TRAIN@Ed provides a professional infrastructure and an appropriate workplace for conducting research. Each fellow receives an annual research allowance and a budget for travel costs. Training, mentoring and career development of the Fellows are major features of the TRAIN@Ed programme. The “cohort” experience is based on the Edinburgh’s very successful Chancellor’s Fellows scheme. Recently data-driven innovation has formed the core of investment in innovation in the Edinburgh and South-East Scotland City Region Deal, as announced by the UK and Scottish Governments. We would be keen to see a data-driven aspect to any research fellowship, and innovation through data will be part of the training opportunities offered.
