Royal Society announces prestigious University Research Fellowships

RSThe Royal Society has announced the appointment of 41 new University Research Fellows (URFs) for 2013 including Dr Thomas Blake and Dr Vladimir Dokchitser from Warwick:

  • Dr Thomas Blake – University of Warwick
    Exploring new physics through rare decays of B meson particles at LHCb at CERN
  • Dr Vladimir Dokchitser – University of Warwick
    Special values of L-functions and arithmetic

The Royal Society University Research Fellowship scheme aims to provide outstanding scientists, who have the potential to become leaders in their chosen fields, with the opportunity to build an independent research career.

The scheme is extremely competitive and URFs are expected to be strong candidates for permanent posts in universities at the end of their fellowships.

The Royal Society is a self-governing Fellowship of many of the world’s most distinguished scientists drawn from all areas of science, engineering, and medicine. The Society’s fundamental purpose, as it has been since its foundation in 1660, is to recognise, promote, and support excellence in science and to encourage the development and use of science for the benefit of humanity.
