The Ramsay Memorial Fellowships Trust is delighted to offer the Ramsay Memorial Fellowships for 2017 round. Eligible candidates are those coming from any commonwealth countries who have relevant educational background. The winning scholarship scholars will receive a fully -funded award during the program. To apply, the application packet must be received no later than 15 November 2016.
Ramsay Memorial Fellowships are awarded annually by the Ramsay Memorial Fellowships Trust to postdoctoral chemists who have already had some postdoctoral experience of research but who are in the early stages of their career, so that they may initiate a programme of original and independent research. Fellowships are usually tenable at a university or other place of academic research within the United Kingdom.
Value and Tenure
All of the relevant expenses will be covered with this fellowship for two years.
Level and Area of Studies
Research program in Chemistry studies.
Place of Study
The research will be taken in the United Kingdom.
Eligibility and Criteria
- Preference will be given to candidates who have been born within the Commonwealth and who have graduated with distinction in chemistry from a university within the Commonwealth. In exceptional cases, the Trustees may award a Fellowship to a candidate whose academic distinction has been gained outside the Commonwealth.
- Candidates will be expected to have had training in research leading to the possession of a PhD, preferably of a university within the British Commonwealth or its equivalent, and to show evidence of their ability to initiate and pursue a programme of independent research. Candidates cannot be considered unless they have submitted their PhD thesis by the 31 December following the deadline for receipt of applications. Great emphasis is placed by the Advisory Council on both the quality and the originality of the research proposed.
- The Advisory Council also takes into account evidence of mobility, at pre- or post-doctoral level and/or in the selection of the candidate’s proposed place of work. However, in doing so, it will also give consideration to any personal factors or circumstances that have impacted, or will be likely to impact, on this, eg parenting or caring responsibilities. Preference will also be given to early-career candidates.
Students from all nationals are welcome to apply. However, preference will be given to those coming from commonwealth countries.
