STAG Research Centre


The STAG Research Centre is keen to host research fellowships that strengthen and broaden all our areas of research activity.  We welcome expression of interest from researchers that would be interested in applying for any of these schemes or who would be interested in applying for ERC grants with the STAG as a host.
