This includes non-subject specific schemes such as the British Academy Postdoctoral Fellowship, the Newton Fellowship, or the Marie-Sklodowska Curie Individual Fellowships scheme, as well as philosophy-specific Postdoctoral Fellowships such as the Analysis Trust/Mind Association studentship.

If you are not sure which member of staff could best support your application, please contact Dr Mary Leng (email@example.com), Chair of the Departmental Research Committee, who will be able to advise you.
