Queen’s is a leader in equality initiatives in science. We hold twelve Athena SWAN departmental awards - two gold, eight silver and two bronze. The University was the first in the UK to receive an institutional Silver Award, one of only nine others in the UK to do so.
Queen’s is committed to the Concordat to Support the Career Development of Researchers and holds the European Commission’s HR Excellence in Research Award.
The Queen’s University Research Fellowship Scheme was launched in 2015 to recruit outstanding postdoctoral researchers from across the globe and accelerate their careers at Queen’s. The scheme allows these early-career, future research leaders to concentrate on their research while developing rounded leadership skills through tailored career development training.
The annual Vice-Chancellor’s Research Prizes recognises the exceptional achievements of researchers from across the institution, awarding prizes across four categories: Research Impact; Research Innovation; Early Career Researcher; and Post-Doctoral Researcher.
