RAMSAY MEMORIAL FELLOWSHIPS FOR POSTDOCTORAL CHEMICAL RESEARCH
Applications are invited for the award by the Ramsay Trustees of General (British) Ramsay Memorial Fellowships in 2014.
Ramsay Memorial Fellowships are unique in providing opportunities for postdoctoral chemists who have already had some postdoctoral experience of research but who are in the early stages of their academic careers to initiate an original and independent programme of research.
Ramsay Fellowships will normally be tenable at a university in the United Kingdom for two years on a full-time basis with effect from 1 October 2014.
The Ramsay Trust will contribute 50% of each Fellow’s total salary costs up to a maximum of £15,000 per annum, with the balance to be paid by the host institution or other co-sponsoring body. In addition, a grant of up to £1,000 per annum may be requested for (non-travel) research expenses.
Ramsay Memorial Fellowships were established as a memorial to Sir William Ramsay, KCB, FRS – who received Britain’s first Nobel Prize for Chemistry, in 1904, for his discovery of the noble gases – for the purpose of promoting the development of the science of chemistry by encouragement of individual ability at the highest level.
