Royal Society Press Release

The Royal Society have issued a press release announcing this year’s Royal Society University Research Fellows, for which I am one of the 38 recipients. The fellowship is very prestigious, and the competition is across all scientific disciplines, with a success rate of 8% this year. I take up my post at the University of Bristol, in the School of Chemistry on 1st October.

From the press release: “The University Research Fellowship scheme aims to provide outstanding scientists, who have the potential to become leaders in their chosen fields, with the opportunity to build an independent research career. The scheme is extremely competitive and URFs are expected to be strong candidates for permanent posts in universities at the end of their fellowships.”
