Deadline:  2020-07-15

Location:  Sheffield, UK

The School of Mathematics and Statistics at the University of Sheffield plans to support applications for five-year fellowships in 2020/21, in particular for the University Research Fellowship funded by the Royal Society and for the Ernest Rutherford Fellowship funded by the Science and Technology Facilities Council. These are advanced fellowships targeting early career scientists with some postdoctoral experience, who have the potential to become leaders in their field.

Details about these fellowships and the application procedure can be found on the following websites:

The application deadline for the University Research Fellowship is 3 September 2020, and the deadline for the Ernest Rutherford Fellowship is 17 September 2020.

Current members of the School working on Cosmology, Relativity and Gravitation (CRAG) include Sam Dolan, Steffen Gielen, Carsten van de Bruck and Elizabeth Winstanley. Our current research focuses on cosmology and general relativity, black hole physics, quantum field theory on curved spacetime and quantum gravity. We are interested in supporting research proposals that complement our existing research.

Expressions of interest should be sent to Dr Steffen Gielen at the address s.c.gielen[AT] They should include a full CV and publication list, but a research proposal is not necessary at this stage. We will review applications after 15 July and plan to conclude the internal selection process by early August 2020.

We are committed to diversity and equality within our community and particularly welcome expressions of interest from minority groups, women, persons with disabilities and persons of any sexual orientation or gender identity.
