THE ROYAL SOCIETY


Research Appointments 2001

Applications are invited for about forty-five Royal Society
University Research Fellowships (for research in all branches of
natural science including agriculture, mathematics, technology,
medical and engineering sciences), the Robert and Joan Case
Research Fellowship (for brain research in its widest aspects)
and the Pickering Research Fellowship (for research in chemistry
and horticultural science). All the appointments are tenable in
the first instance for five years from 1 October 2001 (or later
in the academic year 2001–2). These fellowships provide
outstanding scientists, who should have the potential to become
leaders in their chosen field, with the opportunity to build an
independent research career. The expectation is that research
fellows will obtain a permanent university or industrial research
post within about six years, although renewal for three years and
a further two will be considered if necessary.

Applicants must have a doctorate or equivalent research
experience. They should be at least twenty-six but ideally not
more than forty, and have between two and seven years'
postdoctoral experience by 1 October 2001. University Research
Fellowships are open only to European Union citizens, but there
are no nationality restrictions on applicants for the Case and
Pickering Fellowships.

Full information, and application forms, are available from the
Society's Web site (http://www.royalsoc.ac.uk), or from the
Research Appointments Department, the Royal Society, 6 Carlton
House Terrace, London SW1Y 5AG (fax: 020-7930 2170, e-mail:
