Ernest Rutherford Fellowships

The Southampton astronomy group is seeking applications from candidates intending to apply for STFC Ernest Rutherford Fellowships in the 2021 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 anticipated closing date 16 September (pending confirmation).

The timetable for this process is:

  • Applications to the department must be received by Friday 30th July 2021. These applications should include:
    • Draft 4-page Case for Support (as specified by STFC)
    • 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 16th August 2021.
  • Individual applications to STFC by 16 September 2021 (TBC).

We are fully committed to promoting equality, diversity & inclusion, and we want our group to provide an open and inclusive environment where students and staff of all backgrounds can thrive and feel valued. For more details, see our ED&I page.

All prospective applicants are strongly encouraged to contact any of our members of staff to discuss the opportunities within the group, or directly to the Head of the Astronomy Group, Sebastian Hoenig.
