We wish to welcome more Independent Research Fellows to the Department of Biology at the University of York.

We are holding a virtual Independent Fellows Day on 15 April 2021. This is an opportunity to meet our staff, find out about the support and mentorship that we can provide to help in securing fellowship funding, and to hear about the opportunities for career progression. We can offer an attractive support package for holders of independent research fellowships in strategically important areas of research.
