Applications for 2020 Ramsay Memorial Fellowship now open

Sir William Ramsay

1 Aug 2019

Applications are invited for the Ramsay Memorial Fellowship for 2020-2022 cohort. Ramsay Memorial Fellowships started as a memorial to Sir William Ramsay (1852-1916), who was Professor of Inorganic and General Chemistry at UCL. Like Sir William, the Ramsay Fellows have made many important discoveries that have changed our world.

Fellowships are granted every year by the Ramsay Memorial Fellowships Trust to postdoctoral chemists who have already had some postdoctoral experience of research but who are in the early stages of their career, so that they may initiate a programme of original and independent research. Fellowships are usually tenable at a university or other place of academic research within the United Kingdom.

The prestigious Ramsay Fellowship is more than a simple grant, giving recipients a high international reputation and an invitation to the annual dinner: allowing fellows to share and discuss information with esteemed peers. SCI is delighted to have partnered with the Ramsay Trust Foundation to help deliver this amazing Fellowship program.

A Fellowship is co-sponsored, the Trust will contribute 50% of the Fellow’s total salary costs up to a maximum of £17,500 per annum, with the balance of all other costs to be paid by the co-sponsor. In addition, a grant of up to £1,000 per annum may be requested by the Fellow for research expenses which can be shown to be essential to the research work being undertaken.

All applications must be completed using the application form. All applications must be supported by three references, submitted to awards@soci.org. SCI will not chase for references, it is the responsibility of the applicant to ensure that these are returned on time.

The deadline for applications is 15 November 2019.

Further information and a link to download the application form are available via the links below.
