STFC Ernest Rutherford Research Fellowships 2017
The 2017 round of Ernest Rutherford Fellowships has been announced by the Science and Technology Research Council (STFC), see: here.
These are fully funded five-year research fellowships to be held in science areas supported by STFC. If you are interested in applying for one of these to be hosted by the Astrophysics Research Institute at Liverpool John Moores University you can find more details about our research at: http://www.astro.ljmu.ac.uk/research
The STFC deadline for ER Fellowships is 21st September 2017, but to conform with necessary processes, candidates must submit their applications to the ARI by Friday 18th August 2017. We encourage excellent potential applicants to contact the ARI as soon as possible for informal discussions. STFC limit the number of candidates that each institute can put forward (ARI has 3), which means that we need to have a round of internal selection. We intend to make a final decision on which applications we will support no later than Wednesday 23rd August 2017. If you wish to apply please send a 1-page draft research proposal following STFC’s guidelines for ER Fellowships, a CV and list of publications to: Nate Bastian (Head of Research) by Friday 18th August 2017.
Additionally, the deadline for the Royal Society University Research Fellowship is 4th September 2017. These are also prestigious fully funded five (+3) year fellowships.
While there are no official quotas, please contact a member of staff at ARI if you are interested in applying, no later than 24th August 2017.
