The Marshall Aid Commemoration Commission will be offering one post-doctoral Marshall Sherfield Fellowship in 2013.
This Fellowship enables an American scientist or engineer to undertake post-doctoral research for a period of one to two academic years at a British university or research institute.
To qualify candidates should:
*Be citizens of the United States of America normally resident in the USA
*Hold a doctorate in a science or engineering subject by the time they take up their Fellowship
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. The wider objectives are similar to those of the Marshall Scholarships programme:
*To enable intellectually distinguished young Americans, their country's future leaders, to study in the UK.
*To help fellows gain an understanding and appreciation of contemporary Britain.
*To contribute to the advancement of knowledge in science and technology at Britain's centres of academic excellence.
*To motivate fellows to act as ambassadors from the USA to the UK and vice versa throughout their lives thus strengthening British American understanding.
*To promote the personal and academic fulfilment of each fellow.
