Politics and International Relations (PIR): Research


Postdoctoral Research

Edinburgh PIR has a lively group of postdoctoral fellows who play an integral role in our activities. Many of them participate in collaborative projects, organise seminars and workshops, and deliver research-led teaching across our curriculum.

We have a strong track record in securing funding for postdoctoral fellows. Within the current REF period (2008-13) we hosted a total of 12 fellows with funding from Leverhulme, the British Academy, the ESRC, the European Union (Marie Curie Fellowship), and the Royal Society (Newton International Fellowship).
