L’OREAL Fellowships for Women in Science

Great opportunity for early career researchers! L’Oreal’s fellowships for Women in Science are now open for applications and if you are eligible we would strongly encourage you to apply. We are proud to say that only last year one of our PhD students – Rebecca Arnold from the Department of Physics & Astronomy – won theL’Oreal-UNESCO For Women in Science poster competition.

We believe that our truly inspiring researchers are in a great position to take full advantage of this exciting opportunity. The deadline for applications is 16th February 2018.


The L’Oréal-UNESCO UK and Ireland Fellowships For Women in Science are awards offered by a partnership between L’Oréal UK & Ireland, the UK National Commission for UNESCO and the Irish National Commission for UNESCO, with the support of the Royal Society, to promote, enhance and encourage the contribution of women pursuing their research careers in the UK or Ireland in the fields of the life and physical sciences.

The National Fellowships are offered under the umbrella of the L’Oréal-UNESCO For Women in Science Programme, which has promoted women in scientific research on a global scale since 1998.

Five Fellowships will be awarded in 2018 to outstanding women scientists in the early stages of their career to facilitate promising scientific research. The Fellowships are tenable at any UK or Irish university or research institute to support a 12-month period of early career research in any area of life, physical and computer sciences, engineering and mathematics.
