School of Electronic Engineering and Computer Science

Postdoctoral fellowship opportunities

The School of EECS is keen to support strong candidates in applying for Research Fellowships from a variety of external funders.

Queen Mary's School of Electronic Engineering and Computer Science is renowned for its internationally leading research activities, helping to solve real-world problems. We are firmly established as a centre of national and international excellence in research. As a multidisciplinary school, our researchers work with the arts and sciences collaborating with psychologists, biologists, musicians and actors, mathematicians, medical researchers, dentists and lawyers. We are well known for our pioneering research and pride ourselves on our world-class projects.

If your profile and interests match our activities, we would be very interested to hear from you. Most of the opportunities are open to candidates of any nationality, but specific rules and regulations with respect to career stage (e.g. minimum or maximum number of years post-PhD) may apply.

What we offer

We are an ATHENA Swan Bronze award holder. With over 90 academic staff passionate about their discipline, the School of EECS is an exciting place to be for those who share our love of science and technology. We currently host a number of Fellows at different stages of career development. In addition to advice and administrative support during the application process, we provide a highly supportive work environment in which to develop your career; all Fellows are supported by a dedicated academic mentor during their time in the School, and have access to a range of workshops and training courses organised by the Queen Mary Academy.


To allow time both for preparation and proper costing of the proposal, the process must start several weeks before the deadline. All proposals will be critically reviewed internally by members of academic staff as part of the submission process.

To apply

To start the process please contact the member of academic staff that is undertaking research in your area of interest as early as possible and discuss the opportunity of applying for a fellowship mentored by them. Alternatively, you may contact the School's Research Grants Administration team at, who will be able to suggest potential mentors and provide administrative support.


Each scheme has a different deadline, so please check the relevant links below to know the deadline that applies to you.
