Postdoctoral Fellowships 2020

The SWDTP hosted seven ESRC-funded Postdoctoral Fellowships across the South West in 2020.

The ESRC Postdoctoral Fellowship Scheme provides a career development opportunity for those at a relatively early stage of their academic career and successful fellows were chosen on their ability to demonstrate great potential in social science research, with an international development focus.

As the South West Doctoral Training Centre (SWDTC), we were one of five DTC partners chosen by the ESRC in 2016 to deliver the fellowships programme based on a longstanding commitment to supporting postgraduate training with an international development focus and to demonstrable research strength in this area.
