  • The proposed fellowship activities must be ODA compliant.
  • The call is open to those who have completed a PhD within any institution of the North West DTC, i.e. Lancaster, Liverpool or Manchester Universities.
  • The deadline for applications is 9 September; fellowship start dates are between November 2016 and January 2017.
