The Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC) White Rose Doctoral Training Partnership (WRDTP) Postdoctoral Fellowship Scheme is aimed at those in the immediate postdoctoral stage of their career, to provide an opportunity to consolidate their PhD through developing publications, their networks, their research and professional skills. The scheme supports salary and limited research costs for one year, starting in October 2023. To be eligible you should have been awarded a PhD or have passed your viva voce with minor amendments between March 2022 and 2023 at a research organisation that is part of a DTP or CDT and have no more than 12 months active postdoctoral experience by March 2023.

The White Rose DTP is running a two stage process. The deadline for the first stage (Expression of Interest) is 4pm GMT, Thursday 12 January 2023. Applicants will be notified of the outcome of their EOI by mid-February 2023, and successful applicants will then need to complete a full application form, with support from York.

This year's call specification, Expression of Interest form and guidance documents are available on the White Rose DTP website.
