Applying for a fellowship in bioengineering at Imperial

Imperial Bioengineering is able to support several independent postdoctoral/junior group leader fellowships. Dr Ouldridge may be appropriate as a sponsor/mentor.

Bioengineering does not support all fellowship schemes, currently supported fellowships include:

UKRI Future Leaders Fellowship
EPSRC Open Fellowship
Wellcome Career Development Award
Royal Society University Research Fellowship
ERC Starting Grant

If you are unsure about whether Bioengineering would support a given fellowship, feel free to contact Tom at or

The department conducts a single annual interview session for all eligible fellowships to issue host support to the best candidates. Candidates submit a concise Expression of Interest package and are selected for their track record, research vision, and fit for our department (deadline typically around end of February). An ad hoc interview panel with a deep understanding of independent fellowships is organised to assess the application.

More information on the departmental support system for independent fellows and how to apply for host support can be found here.
