Eleanor Dodson Fellowship

Posted on 23 September 2016

The celebration of 50 years of Chemistry at York and the generous donations of our alumni have led to the creation of ‘The Eleanor Dodson Fellowship Fund’.

Eleanor Dodson

We are seeking to appoint to an Eleanor Dodson Fellowship for an individual researching any branch of chemistry. The aim of the Fellowship is to:

  • Launch talented researchers into independent research/academic careers
  • Support scientific excellence in any area of chemistry
  • Provide these opportunities for someone requiring flexible work patterns

You must be able to demonstrate a current need for flexible support due to personal circumstances at the time of application. This can include current parenting or caring responsibilities (such as raising children or looking after ageing or seriously ill family members), clinically diagnosed health issues or other personal circumstances that create a need for a flexible working pattern. You will already have an excellent track record at PhD and postdoctoral research, and will now be aiming for an independent research career.

This Fellowship celebrates the achievements of Professor Eleanor Dodson FRS, a researcher in York from 1976 until her formal retirement in 2005 and now a Professor Emerita. Professor Dodson is famous for her innovation in methods of determining structures of proteins from X-ray data to which she brought new mathematical and computational solutions. She represented the inclusive values of the Department with her non-traditional qualifications and by working part time.
