Why bring your Research Fellowship to Durham University?

Durham University is a world-class university with research at its core. Research shapes and inspires the disciplinary structure of our departments, several of which lead the UK - and even the world - in their fields.

Research Institutes, with staff based in departments working together to develop new research areas, create new interdisciplinary and multidisciplinary teams, and stimulate new ideas. Our resources are also world class, including major research facilities and equipment and a Library resourced with an expanding catalogue, databases, e-journals, and special collections.
