How to Apply


2017 Recruitment: The third round of recruitment for the scheme will be officially launched in Summer/Autumn of 2017.


Applying for one of our Great Minds fellowships is easy.

Simply find the role you are interested in, using the search function on the homepage, and select the ‘Apply Now’ link at the bottom of the job summary.  You will then be taken to our online application system where you will be taken step by step through the application process.  Very briefly, you will be asked to enter some basic personal details and complete an equal opportunities monitoring form.  You will also need to upload the following documents:

  • A CV;
  • A supporting statement detailing your research and academic plan (no more than 2 sides of A4, minimum font size 11);
  • A list of your publications.

These three documents will be used to shortlist candidates for interview.  After the closing date we are unable to accept updated documents, therefore please check they contain everything you wish include before you submit your application.

And that’s it!  Once you have submitted it you will receive an email to confirm our receipt of your application (if you don’t receive this please get in touch as soon as possible).

Although negotiable it is hoped that all of this year’s successful candidates will be in post by the start of the 2016/17 academic year.

Should you have any questions about any aspect of your application or the application process please check our frequently asked questions section, where you’ll find the answers to our most common queries.  If you can’t find the answer there please contact us at
