Spotlight on Durham's Women in Physics
Durham University strengthens its international research collaborations in energy materials research.
We are excited to announce a £150k Rutherford Strategic Partnership Grant programme that will bring four early career scientists to Durham University from India, Malaysia, and Mexico as Rutherford Strategic Fellows in Organic Energy Research (RSFs). The successful 2018 bid was led by Asst Prof Paul McGonigal (Department of Chemistry) and Dr Alyssa-Jennifer Avestro (Durham Energy Institute Early Career Fellow and Royal Commission for the Exhibition of 1851 Research Fellow, Department of Chemistry). The Fellowships will draw international talents from around the globe to develop genuinely useful materials to meet the world’s ever-growing energy needs. The RSFs will push the boundaries of organic energy materials for storage, generation, and transmission alongside experts from the Departments of Chemistry, Physics, and Engineering.
