2019/20 Fellowship Call - New Opportunities

Our Vice-Chancellor's Fellowships scheme offers an exciting opportunity for exceptional early-career researchers to advance their research careers, and support our strategic priorities. We’re looking for candidates who are ready to seize the opportunity to become future leaders in their field.

We have the following two strategic fellowship opportunities available: 

Cardiovascular Science

In this particular call we are seeking a VC Fellow to work as part of the research team delivering an Accelerator Award from the British Heart Foundation. The aim of this award is to provide substantial funding to nurture multidisciplinary collaborative research in two areas that the BHF have identified as areas of scientific excellence at the University of Bristol. As well as fitting into the broad remit for VC Fellows, the successful applicant will conduct research in the area of developmental origins of cardiovascular disease/cardiometabolic health and/or identifying targets for interventions (lifestyle or pharmaceutical) aimed at preventing or treating cardiovascular diseases. They will need to demonstrate ability to adopt a population health science approach to these issues, using causal inference methods such as Mendelian randomization and working in a multidisciplinary environment. They should have expertise in one or more of the following specialist areas: epidemiology, biostatistics, informatics, mathematics or computer science. 

If you are interested in this fellowship please contact Professor Debbie Lawlor: D.A.Lawlor@bristol.ac.uk to discuss potential academic sponsors.

The History of Hong Kong

Housed in the Department of History (which sits within the School of Humanities), and within the wider interdisciplinary cohort of Vice-Chancellor’s Fellows, this Fellowship is funded by a generous donation from the Hatton Trust, as part of the second phase of the Hong Kong History Project that commenced in January 2015. This aims to encourage and facilitate the study of the history of nineteenth and twentieth century Hong Kong in the UK, and build new collaborations with partners in Hong Kong. Possible fields of expertise could include, but will not be restricted to: subjects in the history of Hong Kong society, politics, culture and economy under colonial rule; Hong Kong elites (social, cultural and political history), individuals and families, and their interactions with the colonial government, Hong Kong society, commerce and culture; mobility and migration; entrepreneurialism; Hong Kong’s regional and global connections. The research contexts could include (but are not be restricted to) modern Chinese and East Asian history, modern British colonial history, or global history. It is expected that the project would require Chinese language skills.

If you are interested in this fellowship please contact Professor Robert Bickers: Robert.Bickers@bristol.ac.uk to discuss potential academic sponsors.
