External Award: Ernest Rutherford Fellowships in the UK
The Science and Technology Facilities Council of the United Kingdom is offering Ernest Rutherford Fellowships to enable early career researchers with clear leadership potential to establish a strong, independent research programme. They will encourage talented researchers in UK universities to remain in the country and at the same time attract outstanding overseas researchers to the UK.

Applicants must have a PhD and a minimum of five years’ research experience from the start of the postgraduate programme leading to the award of a PhD and 1 September 2018 with, normally, a minimum of two years’ postdoctoral experience.
