David Crighton Fellowships: Notice

The David Crighton Fund was set up in memory of the late Professor David Crighton, FRS, to provide support for young scholars in his research field, i.e. the sub-field of applied mathematics concerned with fluid mechanics, acoustics, waves, and vibration. The Managers of the Fund are accordingly offering up to four David Crighton Fellowships for research students and postdoctoral Fellows in these areas to undertake up to three months of study and research either in Cambridge, if they are currently based outside Cambridge, or elsewhere, if they are currently based in Cambridge. The award is to be used to cover actual travel and subsistence expenses; the maximum amount of any one award is £2,500. The period of study should begin in the calendar year 2004.

Applications are invited from suitable candidates, who should normally be in the second half of their Ph.D. Degree research or have no more than three years' postdoctoral experience. The application should include a brief curriculum vitae, a one-page description of the candidate's research topic, a statement of the benefit that can be expected from the proposed period of study, a letter from the proposed senior host stating that he or she agrees to accept the candidate to study with them between specified dates, countersigned by the host's Head of Department, a detailed statement of expected travel and subsistence expenses, and the names and addresses (including e-mail addresses) of two academic referees. It is expected that candidates will normally come from a Department of (Applied) Mathematics, Engineering, or Physics. Applications should be sent by 15 January 2004 to Professor T. J. Pedley, FRS, Head of the Department of Applied Mathematics and Theoretical Physics, Centre for Mathematical Sciences, Wilberforce Road, Cambridge, CB3 0WA (fax 01223 760497, e-mail t.j.pedley@damtp.cam.ac.uk). E-mail or faxed applications will be accepted.
