The Department of Education at the University of York is seeking to appoint three Bowland Research Fellows to join the Department during the 2022-23 academic year. This is an exciting opportunity to pursue a programme of independent research in a stimulating and collaborative environment. Applications are now invited from outstanding early career researchers with an emerging reputation in education studies.

The fellowships present an excellent opportunity for ambitious and highly motivated education researchers to progress their career in a department known for its research quality and impact, being ranked 5th in the UK for research and 1st for impact in the Times Higher 2021 ranking of the Research Excellence Framework. Each fellow will be given a research budget to enable them to carry out their research and to communicate and disseminate the results.

Applications are invited from across the range of educational research interests but are particularly welcomed in the Department’s strategic priority areas. These include – but are not limited to – educational evaluation and best-evidence approaches to teaching and curriculum design; and mental health and wellbeing in education. We will also prioritise educational research with strong real-world impact; projects in which open research is an integral element; and research which foregrounds equality, diversity & inclusion in recruitment and the conduct of research.

The Bowland Research Fellows will be independent researchers conducting their own programme of original research. Applicants should have a PhD and be able to demonstrate high levels of research independence and a publications record that is contributing to the development of the future of the field.
