Ernest Rutherford Fellowships

The Southampton astronomy group is seeking applications from candidates intending to apply for STFC Ernest Rutherford Fellowships in the 2019 applications round.

The group can only support a strictly limited number of candidates, and so an internal selection process will be carried out prior to the final STFC closing date on 19 September.

The timetable for this process is:

  • Applications to the department must be received by Friday 2nd August 2019. These applications should include:
    • Draft 3-page proposal (in the STFC format)
    • STFC-style CV.
    • written permission for us to store and distribute your data electronically for the purposes of the selection process.
  • Applicants will be informed of the results of the internal selection process by Monday 19th August 2019.
  • Individual applications to STFC by 19 September 2019.

Prospective applicants are strongly encouraged to contact any of our members of staff to discuss the opportunities within the group.
