The Royal Society has announced the appointment of 5 new Dorothy Hodgkin Fellows (DHFs) for 2012. The scientists started taking up their new posts at institutions across the UK at the start of October.
The Dorothy Hodgkin Fellowship scheme supports excellent scientists and engineers at an early stage of their career. It is designed to help successful candidates progress to permanent academic positions across the UK. It is aimed specifically at researchers who require a flexible working pattern and is particularly popular with female scientists.
The new DHFs are working on projects which include exploring mathematics using string theory and soil carbon dynamics in water repellent soils.
The full list of appointments is as follows:
Dr Anna Holin - University College London
Investigating the neutrino with MINOS and liquid Argon detector technology
Dr Lotte Hollands - University of Oxford
Exploring mathematics using string theory: instantons, vortices and knots
Dr Akane Kawamura - University of Oxford
Cyclic peptide inhibitors targeting histone demethylases
Dr Emilia Urbanek - Swansea University
Soil carbon dynamics in water repellent soils - C mineralization and CO2 efflux
Dr Anna-Maria van Veggel - University of Glasgow
Innovative technology to pave the way for gravitational wave astrophysics
