The Fellows will be able to undertake their research in the following departments: Materials Science & Metallurgy, Physics and Applied Mathematics and Theoretical Physics (DAMTP).

The Fellowship stipend will be on the University's Postdoctoral Research Associate scale, currently between £32,816-£40,322per annum, with an annual research allowance of up to £15,000.
