Virtual Independent Fellows Day

Posted on 5 May 2022

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

We are holding a virtual Independent Fellows Day on 23 June 2022. 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.

If you are interested in finding out more, in the first instance, please contact the member of staff in the research focus area that most fits your research interests.

To apply to attend on the 23 June 2022, please send the following as a single document to by 9am on 6 June 2022:

  • a cover letter (1 page maximum)
  • a 2-page CV 
  • a 1-page document outlining your research proposal. Please structure with three sections: 1) your proposed area of research; 2) why you are competitive for a fellowship in this area; and 3) why you think York is the right place to conduct this research.

We look forward to meeting you!
