Winton Advanced Research Fellowships Starting 2013
Department of Physics
The Fund Managers of the Winton Programme invite applications for Advanced Research Fellowships. This scheme will support outstanding scientists and will allow them to develop an independent research career. Candidates sought are of the calibre to win permanent posts in universities at the end of their fellowships. Candidates will normally have completed at least one post-doctoral appointment at an institution different from that at which their PhD was obtained. Fellowships will be of 5 years' duration and will provide salary comparable to junior university faculty positions (on the scale currently £37,012 -£46,846 per annum) and appropriate support for equipment, travel and operating expenses. Proposed projects should be in new areas or take new approaches in established areas related to research in the broad field of the application of physics to sustainability.
Applications should submit a standard application comprising: Parts I and III of the CHRIS/6 cover sheet (available at: http://www.admin.cam.ac.uk/offices/hr/forms/chris6/); a curriculum vitae; a list of publications; the names and addresses of 3 referees; a personal statement of accomplishments to date (up to 1000 words); an outline research proposal (up to 1500 words); and a brief account of research support required (up to 750 words). The research outline should emphasise the novelty of the research approach, but also set out a clear plan of activity.
Those successful at the outline stage will be invited for an interview for which guidance will be provided.
Enquires can be addressed to the Winton Programme manager Dr Nalin Patel (firstname.lastname@example.org). Applications are to be sent to the Winton Programme Manager, Cavendish Laboratory, Department of Physics by email to: email@example.com to arrive no later than 15 January 2013.
