What is the Andrew Fellowship?
The Andrew Fellowship has been set up in commemoration of Professor Syd Andrew, a distinguished expert in the field of catalysis. The fellowship provides funding for up to two candidates every other year to enable research into the science of the formulation of heterogeneous catalysis.
The candidates will be expected to
- carry out research into the field of the science of the formulation of heterogeneous catalysis;
- visit a number of industrial institutions and other academic departments in a number of countries to develop their research interests: and
- submit a summary of what they have achieved at the end of each year and what they expect to achieve in the next year in the field of heterogeneous catalysis research
Who is the fellowship open to?
The fellowship is open to candidates that wish to carry out research into the science of the formulation of heterogeneous catalysts and are either already studying or working at an IChemE-accredited university department or have an offer of appointment.
It would be advantageous for the application to be supported by a letter of recommendation from at least one industrial concern, in any location, that is undertaking research into heterogeneous catalysis or the formulation of surfaces whose catalytic properties are important to products or processes.
What will the candidate receive?
Candidates will be granted an award of £10,000/y for up to four years in addition to whatever stipend or salary they might receive in their current or proposed appointment. In addition to this there is up to £5,000/y available for travel and accommodation expenses in the same period.
How to apply?
Applications for the Andrew Fellowship are closed at present. The Fellowship will re-open in 2018.
