STFC provides direct funding to UK Research Organisations for Fellowships and, through our research grants, for over 700 postdoctoral, technical and other staff.

In our own laboratories and facilities, we offer joint appointments with university colleagues, postdoctoral positions often in collaboration with universities, plus employment opportunities for postdoctoral staff as facility scientists.

Our scientists and engineers are amongst the best in the world, taking leadership roles in prestigious experiments from the Large Hadron Collider to instruments for NASA or designing the next generation of global science facilities.

We provide media and communications skills training for our academics  and a range of award schemes to enable them to take part in public engagement activities.
