Lindemann Trust Fellowship

Lindemann Scientific Scholarships

Postdoctoral research grants to the USA for scientists

We are now closed for 2016-17 Fellowship applications.

We will reopen in Autumn 2016. 

About

The English-Speaking Union offers up to three grants a year worth $40,000 each for postdoctoral scientists to carry out research in the USA. The Lindemann Trust Fellowships are awarded to graduates of exceptional promise in both the pure and applied physical sciences who have shown capacity for producing original research. Following a bequest of £1,000,000 from Brigadier Charles Lindemann, the ESU has administered the Fellowships since March 1972.

Eligibility

To be eligible to apply, candidates must be British, Irish or Commonwealth citizens, resident in the UK, and have completed a doctorate within the last 3 academic years, or be expecting to complete this academic year at the latest. Holders of established research and lecturing posts with a proven record may apply, but the Fellowship should not be regarded as a means of taking up a routine sabbatical. Fellowships may not be held concurrently with any other research grant or scholarship.

The Lindemann Trust supports research in the fields of:

  • Astronomy
  • Biophysics
  • Chemistry
  • Engineering
  • Geology
  • Geophysics
  • Mathematics
  • Physics
