Updated postdoc application form

The ESRC has updated the application form for the Postdoctoral Fellowship Scheme, following questions about mentor’s costs and whether these can be directly allocated as well as directly incurred.

Following this, the template has now to include an ‘other costs’ row under the directly allocated in the financial resources table. You can find the updated form at the bottom of the Postdoctoral Fellowship Scheme page, and the Application Portal has been updated.
