Winton Cambridge-Kavli ENSI Exchange Program


Winton Cambridge-Kavli ENSI Berkeley Exchange Program: Applications for 2019 now open!

 

An Exchange Program has been established between the Winton Program for the Physics of Sustainability at the University of Cambridge and the Kavli Energy NanoScience Institute (ENSI) at the University of California, Berkeley to support research within the fields of these two programs.

Exchanges for PhD students, postdoctoral researchers and faculty will be supported in both directions between research groups involved in the Winton Program and the ENSI, though additional collaborators from both Universities will be included where their research activities strongly relate to the Winton and ENSI programs.

We are currently seeking applications for exchange visits of up to a year, with flexible starting dates for the following schemes:

  • PhD students – Winton Graduate Exchange Scholars
  • Postdoctoral researchers – Winton Postdoctoral Exchange Fellows
  • Faculty – Winton Sabbatical Visitors
  • Winton Advanced Research Fellowship (Group Leaders) in the Physics of Sustainability

 

The deadline for applications for all schemes is October 17th, 2018. Details of the Winton Program can be found at http://www.winton.phy.cam.ac.uk/ and enquires and further information can be obtained by contacting the Winton Program Manager Dr. Nalin Patel (nlp28@cam.ac.uk). 

  

Winton Graduate Exchange Scholars

Students can apply for visits of up to one year to pursue their research projects at the host university.  To be eligible to apply students will need to be registered on a PhD program at their home university for the duration of the visit, and obtain approval from their home and host supervisors for the exchange visit.

Financial support will be provided to meet economy return airfares and visa costs and local expenses towards accommodation and subsistence, including medical insurance. In addition, research support funds will be provided to the group of the host supervisor to facilitate the research of the PhD student.

Applicants need to complete the attached student exchange application form and submit to the Winton Programme (email to winton@phy.cam.ac.uk), which will be reviewed by a Winton /ENSI panel.

Awards will be made subject to candidates being able to meet institutional and visa requirements.

 

Winton Postdoctoral Exchange Fellows

Postdoctoral researchers can apply for visits of up to one year to continue their research or develop new areas of research within the remit of the Winton and ENSI programs. To be eligible applicants must be currently based at the home university and obtain approval from their home and host supervisors for the exchange visit.

Financial support will meet economy return airfares, visa costs, and local expenses towards accommodation subsistence, including medical insurance.  In addition, research support funds will be provided to the group of the host supervisor to facilitate the research of the postdoctoral researcher.

Applicants need to complete the attached postdoctoral exchange application form and submit to the Winton Program (email to winton@phy.cam.ac.uk), which will be reviewed by a Winton /ENSI panel

Awards will be made subject to candidates being able to meet institutional and visa requirements

 

Winton Sabbatical Visitors

Faculty members can apply for sabbatical visits of up to one year to expand or develop new areas of research within the remit of the Winton and ENSI programs. To be eligible applicants must be employed as a faculty member at the home university for the duration of the sabbatical and obtain approval from their home and host institutions for the exchange visit.

Financial support will be provided to meet economy return airfares and visa costs and local expenses towards accommodation subsistence, including medical insurance. In addition, research support funds can be provided to the group of the host faculty member.

Applicants need to complete the attached sabbatical exchange application form and submit to the Winton Program (email to winton@phy.cam.ac.uk), which will be reviewed by a Winton /ENSI panel.

Awards will be made subject to candidates being able to meet institutional and visa requirements.

Further information on the Winton Program can be found at http://www.winton.phy.cam.ac.uk/ and ENSI at http://kavli.berkeley.edu.  Enquires should be addressed to the Winton Program Manager, Nalin Patel (nlp28@cam.ac.uk) or ENSI Program Manager, Negest Williams (<kavli-ensi@berkeley.edu>).

 

Winton Advanced Research Fellowships (Group Leaders) in the Physics of Sustainability

Cavendish Laboratory, University of Cambridge 

Deadline for applications: October 17, 2018

The Winton Advanced Research Fellowship scheme supports outstanding, scientists, providing generous support packages comparable to those for Assistant Professor positions to enable Fellows to establish and lead their own independent research group. We are looking for candidates with new ambitious programmes that expand the range of research activities within the Cavendish Laboratory, and welcome proposals that cross traditional boundaries between physics and other sciences and engineering disciplines.

Candidates are expected to be of the calibre that would be competitive for schemes such as the Royal Society University Research Fellowship (URF), European Research Council (ERC) Starting grants and Assistant Professorship positions across the world. Fellows are expected to win permanent posts in universities at the end of their fellowships. A list of the current Fellows and details of their broad range of research interests can be found at http://www.winton.phy.cam.ac.uk/directory/fellows.

Candidates will normally have completed at least one post-doctoral appointment and Fellowships will be of 5 years' duration with start-up funding available for:

  • Small and large equipment to enable new research directions to be started
  • Laboratory and computing facility set up costs and on-going operating expenses including access charges
  • Full funding for a graduate student with additional studentships available through Departmental allocations, Doctoral Training Centres and various Cambridge Scholarship schemes
  • Laboratory and office space for Fellow and their group members
  • Travel budget to build international collaborations and attend conferences

Proposed projects should be in new areas or take new approaches in established areas related to research in the broad field of the application of physics to sustainability.

Details of the Winton Programme can be found at http://www.winton.phy.cam.ac.uk/ and enquires and further information can be obtained by contacting the Winton Programme manager Dr Nalin Patel (nlp28@cam.ac.uk).
