Research Fellowships

University Research Fellowship (URF) award enables academic staff (pathway 1) to carry out a dedicated research project lasting twelve months. The financial support covers the costs of replacement teaching, assessment and clinical responsibilities during that period.
Senior Research Fellowships (SRFs) are two-year awards confered to distinguished retired members of staff in recognition of their continued contribution to the research at the University.  Fellows are not employees of the University and the awards carry no financial resources.  SRFs are therefore honorary in character and beneficial to senior individuals and their schools if it is formulated around a specific set of research goals.
