RAS logoThe RAS will award two RAS Research Fellowships in 2018, to begin on 1 October 2018 or within 6 months thereafter. Each fellowship provides post-doctoral funding for up to three years.

The fellowships are offered to outstanding candidates to enable them to pursue research in the UK in the disciplines advanced by the RAS i.e. astronomy, solar system science, geophysics and closely related branches of these sciences. Applicants must have been awarded their PhD between 1 October 2013 and 1 October 2018. Only one RAS Research Fellowship may be held in the same university at any one time.

The deadline for applications is 23:59 (BST), 20 October 2017. We expect to make offers for both positions by mid-February.

Please see the applications for the RAS Research Fellowships page for more details, terms & conditions, and the application form.
