Ernest Rutherford Fellowship Applications 2019
We welcome applications for STFC Ernest Rutherford Fellowships. There are quota limits on ERF applications and so we require all applicants to submit a CV (no page limit), publication list, and a short (*strict* 1 page limit) research outline, including a brief additional paragraph on why Durham and how the project connects to Durham. The deadline for these documents is the 4th August and they should be submitted through an appropriate member of academic staff, selected by you, who will act as a local sponsor. We expect to short list our ERF candidates before 25th August.
There are 28 academic staff across the combined astronomy groups, with over
100 postdocs, postgraduate students and support and technical staff involved
in astronomy research. The Durham Astronomy Research Cluster hosts the following groups:
In November 2016, the three main astronomy groups in the Department of Physics, the Centre for Advanced Instrumentation, the Centre for Extragalactic Astronomy and the Institute for Computational Cosmology, moved into the brand new Ogden Centre for Fundamental Physics building, designed by the world renowned Studio Daniel Libeskind.
