Projects with specific funding will be advertised on this page.  We also welcome applications from students who can provide their own funding. 

Independent research fellowships

The Department of Physics at the University of York is keen to attract the world’s best early career physicists and help them to become the next generation of research and teaching leaders. To this end we have developed a scheme that supports early career scientists applying for research fellowships. The scheme provides you with a mentor and, in some cases, a budget to help you prepare applications to your chosen funding agencies.
