Role Description

As part of the 50th Anniversary Celebrations, The Department of Chemistry at the University of York is proud to seek to appoint to an Eleanor Dodson Fellowship for an individual researching any branch of chemistry. The aim of the Eleanor Dodson Fellowship is to:

  • launch talented researchers into independent research/academic careers
  • support scientific excellence in any area of chemistry
  • provide these opportunities for someone requiring flexible work patterns.

You must be able to demonstrate a current need for flexible support due to personal circumstances at the time of application. This can include current parenting or caring responsibilities (such as raising children or looking after ageing or seriously ill family members), clinically diagnosed health issues or other personal circumstances that create a need for a flexible working pattern.

You will already have an excellent track record at PhD and postdoctoral research, and will now be aiming for an independent research career. Eleanor Dodson, FRS, exemplified the inclusive culture of the Department with her non-traditional qualifications and by working part-time. 

Informal enquiries can be made to Professor Robin Perutz, or Professor Duncan Bruce,

The post is available for up to 60 months, starting in January 2017 or as soon as possible thereafter.

The Department of Chemistry holds an Athena SWAN Gold Award and is committed to supporting equality and diversity for all staff and students.
