Grants & Fellowships
Andrew W Mellon Foundation/Research Forum Postdoctoral Fellow (Activities Coordinator) (Courtauld Students only)
One-year fixed term post from 1 January 2013
£28,138 per annum
This scheme offers a recent postdoctoral scholar the possibility to pursue a research project and to gain experience in working in a research environment, developing, organising and promoting the activities of the Research Forum, particularly within the postgraduate community. This is a full-time post divided between research and administration; it does not involve any teaching. Where teaching commitments are in place either at The Courtauld or elsewhere, these will have to be renegotiated. This will enhance the appointee’s curriculum vitae and advance their prospects of obtaining other research awards and posts within the academic community. Applicants must have received their doctorate within two years prior to the start date of the Fellowship, and the doctorate must have been completed or passed with minor corrections required by 14 December 2012.
The applications received by the closing date of 5 October 2012 will be reviewed by the Head of Research and a Faculty Committee with decisions reported to the Research Committee in early November 2012.
Applicants are asked to submit a) a cover letter explaining the candidate’s specific interest in the Fellowship; b) a completed application form; c) a letter of recommendation from their supervisor; and d) an equal opportunities monitoring form. These should be sent to the HR Manager or email firstname.lastname@example.org
Further details are available on the VLE
Closing date for applications: 5 October 2012
