Strengthening international research capacity in Wales
We will be providing up to £17m to bring postdoctoral researchers into Wales as part of the Strengthening international research capacity in Wales (SIRCIW) fellowship programme.
This programme is part funded by the European Commission under Horizon 2020’s Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions COFUND scheme.
These research fellowships are aimed at candidates with 3-5 years postdoctoral research experience who wish to work in Wales.
We aim to support up to 90 fellowships, each of approximately 3 years duration. We will be looking for candidates with credible research proposals that will be applicable in the next 5-10 years., who can build strong links with research partners in Wales.
There will be three cohorts, with the first expected to take up positions in autumn 2016.
