Ernest Rutherford Fellowship at the University of Dundee - (Dundee) - 27 Aug 2021

The University of Dundee invites applications for the Ernest Rutherford Fellowship from the UK Science and Technology Facilities Council (STFC), to be held at the Magnetohydrodynamics and Astrophysics group. The Ernest Rutherford Fellowships provide five years of funding to outstanding researchers at an early stage of their career. The aim is to support future scientific leaders to establish a strong, independent research programme, encouraging talented researchers in UK universities to remain in the country and attracting outstanding overseas researchers to the UK. Priority will be given to scientists that can enhance and/or complement the current research being done at the University of Dundee Magnetohydrodynamics and Astrophysics group. One core research focus is on plasma dynamics in the solar atmosphere, where we address topics such as the heating of the solar coronal plasma, acceleration of the solar wind, and processes important in solar flares such as magnetic reconnection. The second core is focused on the formation, evolution, and dynamics of planetary systems, studies of star formation, protoplanetary disks, and stellar activity in young stars, including multi-wavelength observations from ground- and space-based telescopes and theory. We encourage interested candidates to contact us as soon as possible but latest by the 27th of August. The internal deadline is August 27th, for a final submission deadline to the STFC on September 16th.
