Internally Funded Fellowships
It is recommended that candidates discuss their proposed expression of interest (EOI) with the School/Faculty that would host their Fellowship, should their application be successful.
Each academic unit has nominated a lead academic to act as the contact point for applicants. Contact details for each School/Faculty are provided in the contacts section below. Please ensure you follow the appropriate instructions for each School/Faculty.
When submitting an EOI to the nominated lead, please mark your email “Name – NRF/AMF Expression of Interest submission”.
If you are applying for both schemes, please ensure that you indicate this on the EOI form, and mark your email NRF/AMF Expression of Interest submission.
For further general information about the scheme or the application process, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org

Faculty of Science
Faculty of Social Sciences
Faculty of Arts
All applications to the Faculty of Arts must be submitted to the Faculty Associate Pro Vice Chancellor for Research and Knowledge Exchange, Professor Maiken Umbach, Maiken.firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please note that for this Faculty, applications are particularly encouraged for the following research themes:
- The Public Value of Culture
- Digital Humanities
- Arts/Science Connections (which could include, but is by no means limited to, Medical/Health Humanities)
The final School/Department where the applicant is placed at the end of the fellowship will depend on Faculty requirements
Faculty of Medicine and Health Sciences
Clinical Academics are encouraged to apply to the Nottingham Research Fellowships, and there is a recognition that for this staff group there are very specific challenges, namely that career progression is linked to professional accreditation as a Consultant and the co-funding of any post with the NHS Trust. Thus, while the School of Medicine plans to support successful Clinical Fellows strongly at the conclusion of their Fellowships, it is not necessarily able to guarantee a permanent position following the Fellowship.
