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.

Each Fellowship will last for five years, with up to 12 being offered annually. The aim is to support future scientific leaders to establish a strong, independent research programme. Ernest Rutherford Fellowships are intended for early career researchers who do not have an academic position.

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.

The closing date for applications is September 21, 2017. For more details and to apply, please visit their website.
