STEM Post-Doc in the UK: Marshall Sherfield Fellowship

Oct 10, 2018
US citizens with PhDs in STEM fields

The Marshall Aid Commemoration Commission will be offering one Marshall Sherfield Fellowship for 2019. The first such Fellowships were awarded in 1998 to mark the 50th anniversary of the Marshall Plan. The Fellowships, which are funded by the Marshall Sherfield Fellowship Foundation, and administered by the Marshall Commission, enable American scientists or engineers to undertake post-doctoral research for a period of one to two academic years at a British university or research institute.

The aim of the Marshall Sherfield Fellowships is to introduce American scientists and engineers to the cutting edge of UK science and engineering. It is intended that this in turn will build longer-term contacts and international links between the United Kingdom and the United States in key scientific areas.

Eligible are US citizens who will hold a PhD in a STEM field by the start of the fellowship.
