The Scottish Graduate School of Social Science and the Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC) are pleased to announce a call for Postdoctoral Fellowships as part of the Global Challenges Research Fund (GCRF).

The Global Challenges Research Fund is a £1.5 billion funding stream to support cutting-edge research which addresses the problems faced by developing countries. 

The ESRC GCRF Postdoctoral Fellowship Scheme provides a career development opportunity for those at a relatively early stage of their academic career who can demonstrate great potential in social science research, with an international development focus.

Funding is available for up to £125,000 (100 per cent full Economic Cost (fEC)) per fellowship. Fellowships will be supported at 80 per cent full Economic Cost (fEC).

Further details on the scheme and how to apply can be found here.
