Plant and Agricultural Sciences Fellowships at Bristol

Press release issued: 19 November 2018

The School of Biological Sciences is seeking highly motivated individuals to join us as independent research fellows to lead research in the field of plant and agricultural sciences. Prospective fellows are invited to visit the department, meet with academic and support staff and will be given the opportunity to present their proposed research area.

The Bristol Centre for Agricultural Innovation (BCAI) is offering an additional £50,000 to boost project funding for three individuals that are awarded mid-career independent research fellowships at Bristol (such as BBSRC David Phillips Fellowships, Royal Society University Research Fellowships or UKRI Future Leader Fellowships). Those applying for earlier-career, shorter-term fellowships are eligible for an additional £5,000 of research funding. Proposed research must fall within the remit of BCAI to be eligible for this additional funding.

At Bristol, we benefit from excellent facilities and host a vibrant group of plant scientists. Further information about plant and agricultural research at Bristol can be found here and information on current fellows and the support we offer here

To be considered for BCAI and departmental support, prospective fellowship candidates are required to submit an expression of interest to helen.harper@bristol.ac.uk by 10th January 2019. Your application should consist of your CV, a covering letter (indicating which fellowships you wish to apply for and confirmation that you are eligible) and a research plan (up to 2 pages). We will select and invite candidates with the potential to visit the department in March.

Please contact Dr Helen Harper for any informal enquiries. We look forward to hearing from you.
