Open Call for Post-Doctoral Fellowship Applications

Applications will be considered for these positions at any time.

WISER invites applications for two-year post-doctoral fellowships to be awarded to outstanding candidates from any appropriate discipline.

The fellows will be expected to support the scholarly work and public events of the Institute, but they will be free to pursue their own research.  This is a full-time programme and is not compatible with other employment. Fellows will be expected to work closely with WISER researchers, and to participate fully in the intellectual life of the Institute.

Fellows will receive funding for two years on the university's standard post-doctoral package.  Additional funding for research expenses and conference travel may be available. Fellows will be required to undertake up to 8 hours work a week for WiSER that will be remunerated separately.

To apply, please discuss your work with one of the researchers at WISER and submit the following to the Google form on this page. (The application requires that you make use of a gmail account -- if only to complete this form.)

  • Complete set of course transcripts for each degree
  • Curriculum Vitae, including the names and contact details of three academic referees.
  • A writing sample of your choice
  • A one page description of your interest in this subject.
