Research fellowships

We welcome outstanding researchers to join our large and vibrant academic community of active research staff. We are dedicated to developing and supporting researchers and nurturing excellent research from our staff and students.

Our Department

Join us and you'll be a part of a department whose research has real world significance; the Research Excellence Framework (REF) 2014 ranked us 5th for research impact.

We offer an outstanding research environment that ranked 6th in the Research Excellence Framework (REF) 2014, and hold regular research seminars and meetings.

We work in close collaboration with departments across the University and other national and international academic partners, which our involvement with a number of interdisciplinary research centres reflects. We have strong industrial links that you may benefit from.

Our research is carried out under four themes.
