Winton Programme for the Physics of Sustainability

Department of Physics

Programme appoints new Scholars and Fellows

The Winton Programme has appointed the second cohort of Winton Scholars and Fellows.  The total community of Scholars and Fellows will more than double to seventeen, with the addition of seven more Scholars and two further Fellows.  Five of the Scholars have already started, details can be found on the website (Community), with the other two due to start early next year.  The two fellows, Dr Andrew Morris from University College London and Dr Nicholas Hine from Imperial College, both have a background in theoretical modelling of materials.  There appointments bring new opportunities for theoreticians to work alongside experimentalist to discover the materials of the future.

Note that recruitment process has started for a similar number of appointments of Scholars and Fellows for 2013, and application details can be found on the website (Jobs).
