The Royal Society has announced the appointment of 43 new University Research Fellows (URFs) for 2014. The Research Fellows take up their new posts at institutions across the UK from October.
The 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.
Dr Krzysztof Łatuszyński, Department of Statistics, has been awarded this prestigious University Fellowship for his work on his project 'From the Bernoulli factory to a Kolmogorov factory'.
