University of York Research Fellowship Programme

Welcome to the internal pages of the University of York Research Fellowship Programme

The York Research Fellowship Programme has two main aims: 

I. to retain, attract, and provide support to, talented early career researchers who aim to gain a fellowship at the University of York; and

II. to support the development of current fellowship holders, allowing them to develop their careers at York.

Established in October 2019, the programme also supports the sharing of best practice among departments.

Oversight and governance of the University Fellowship Programme is provided by the Fellowships Coordination Committee (FCC), which meets quarterly, and is chaired by the Pro-Vice-Chancellor for Research (Prof. Matthias Ruth).

Our public-facing Fellowships web-pages can be found on the University website.

The BRIC Team is committed to providing resources that are digitally accessible to all. We are actively working to increase the accessibility and usability of our resources to meet current guidelines over the next few months. We would be grateful if you could let us know as soon as possible if any of the resources we provide could be made more accessible, and how they could be so, by contacting
