STFC Ernest Rutherford Fellowships

We are proud to announce that five Trevelyan alumni are current holders of Ernest Rutherford Fellowships. These fellowships enable early career researchers with clear leadership potential to establish a strong, independent research programme. With up to twelve fellowships being awarded annually, applications for these fellowships are incredibly competitive: it would be amazing to have five fellows from Durham University, but to have five from Trevelyan is a truly remarkable achievement. The current Trevelyanites to hold fellowships are:

Nicholas P. Ross (University of Edinburgh), who is researching ‘The Roles of the Mid-infrared and Surveys in The Life and Times of Quasars’.

Simon Badger (Durham University), who is researching ‘Hard Processes for Collider Physics’.

Matthew Middleton (University of Southampton), who is researching ‘Supermassive black hole growth - a small-scale solution to a large-scale problem’.

Julie Wardlow (Durham University), whose reseach is titled ‘Understanding obscured star formation through cosmic time’.

Dom Walton (University of Cambridge), whose research interests include investigating X-ray astrophysics.
