Personal Fellowships in the CPT

Research Fellowships

We are keen to support a limited number of strong candidates in applying for EPSRC Fellowships, Fellowships supported by STFC and Royal Society University Research Fellowships. If your profile and interests match our activities, we would be very interested to hear from you. The best initial approach is to contact a CPT staff member in your broad area of interest, informally. We will require a cv and a research statement , to be submitted to our Research Committee via your CPT contact a month before the closing date. In this way we can ensure that it is appropriate that the proposed research be carried out within CPT, and we can offer advice that may increase the application's chance of success. Please note that in some cases the CPT may only put forward a limited number of candidates, and in such cases it will be necessary for us to preselect the best applicants.

Applications for EPSRC/STFC Fellowships will be submitted via the JeS System, and it will be necessary to register for a JeS account. The on-line forms require input from the applicant and from Durham University, so completion well in advance of the deadlines set by the Research Councils is strongly recommended. The STFC deadline for the Ernest Rutherford 5-year fellowship applications is Thursday 24 September 2015 at 16:00. Please contact a member of the Mathematical Physics group no later than 15 August 2015 if you intend to hold your Fellowship at Durham.

Applications for Royal Society University Research Fellowships will be submitted via the e-GAP system, and it will be necessary to register for an e-GAP account. The on-line forms require input from the applicant and from Durham University, so completion well in advance of the deadline set by the Royal Society is strongly recommended. The deadline is on 3 September 2015. Please contact a member of the Mathematical Physics group no later than 15 August 2015 if you intend to hold your Fellowship at Durham.
