2011 Winton Advanced Research Fellowships, UK: Physics

The University has recently received a gift of £20M to establish a major programme of research in the broad field of the application of physics to sustainability. This programme includes support for Advanced Research Fellows working within this area of science. Fellows will be expected to carry out their research within the Department of Physics, or, where appropriate, jointly with other Departments in the University, such as the Departments of Chemistry and Materials Science.
This scheme will support outstanding scientists and will allow them to develop an independent research career. Candidates sought are of the calibre to win permanent posts in universities at the end of their fellowships. Candidates will normally have completed two years’ post-doctoral work at an institution different from that at which their PhD was obtained. Fellowships will be of 5 years’ duration, with some scope for extension of two years and will provide salary comparable to junior university faculty positions (on the scale currently £36,862 -£46,696 per annum) and appropriate support for equipment, travel and operating expenses. Managers of the Winton Programme invite outline applications for up to 4 fellowships. They seek projects in new areas or that take new approaches in established areas.

Scholarship Application Deadline: 15 May 2011.
