Lindemann Fellowships, each worth $130,000, are designed as an early post-doctoral opportunity, and are awarded to graduates of exceptional promise in both the pure and applied physical sciences, who have shown capacity for producing original research. Each Fellowship lasts for two years.
The subject areas eligible are defined broadly to include all areas of the physical sciences and mathematics, as well as their interfaces with the life sciences.
We are now open for applications! For more information and to apply for a 2024-2026 Fellowship, please click here. Applications close on Monday 5th February 2024.
The Lindemann Trust Fellowships enable post-doctoral scientists to pursue research at a host institution in the USA without financial difficulty, and without being obliged to take up paid employment. Recent fellows have pursued research at universities and research institutions across the USA, including Harvard, Stanford, Duke, the Dana Farber Cancer Institute, and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. Alumni include Professor Roger Davies (former President of the Royal Astronomical Society) and Sir Graham Hills (physical Chemist and former Governor of the BBC). In addition to the Fellowship, candidates receive £1,000 towards their airfare.
