Summerhayes Fellow

Faculty of Medicine & Health

An exciting and unique opportunity has arisen to support talented PhD graduates from the University of Leeds. This new initiative has been developed by the University of Leeds with the support of a generous philanthropic donation.

Summerhayes Fellowships are aimed at early career researchers who are immediately post-PhD and are looking for their first post-doctoral opportunity to launch their academic research career. The Summerhayes Fellows will work collaboratively across two large Faculties on interdisciplinary projects in the field of health inequalities and disease prevention. It is an exceptional opportunity for new postgraduates to develop their own academic research portfolio, interdisciplinary grant applications and external Fellowship applications.
