NEWS! Aberdeen University is offering twenty 5-year postdoctoral fellowships aligned to its new Interdisciplinary Challenge areas: Energy Transition; Environment and Biodiversity; Health, Nutrition and Wellbeing; Social Inclusion and Cultural Diversity; and Data and Artificial Intelligence. Deadline 16 October 2022. See for further details.

We encourage you to apply for postdoctoral fellowships (Marie Curie, British Academy, Leverhulme, Newton International, ISRF etc.) to hold at CISRUL. If we feel that you would be a strong applicant and your profile and proposed research fits with CISRUL, we can offer you funding to come to Aberdeen for a few days in order to develop an application with us.


Since postdoctoral schemes stress the fit between applicant and institution, we ask that you begin by looking at the detailed information on this website, in order to decide whether CISRUL is the right place for you to develop your career as a researcher. The next step would be to contact the CISRUL member whose discipline and interests are closest to yours. We will then consider inviting you to Aberdeen to spend a few days developing your application.

CISRUL will usually fund travel (up to £750) as well as board & lodging (up to 7 days) for promising applicants to visit us. You would meet regularly with your proposed mentor/s and with officers of the University’s professional services. In addition to working on the fellowship application, you would normally give a CISRUL seminar and engage with CISRUL PhD students.

CISRUL is currently hosting Hanifi Baris’s Leverhulme Early Career Fellowship (2019-22) and Denisse Román’s Newton International Fellowship (2021-3).
