The first successful candidates are:

Professor John Anderson (Social, Political and Geographical Sciences) – Environmental forcing and palaeogenetics
Dr Karen Lumsden (Social, Political and Geographical Sciences) – Crime, policing, victims and social media
Dr Laura Justham (Wolfson School of Mechanical, Electrical and Manufacturing Engineering) – Reimagining how we train the professional engineers of the future
Professor Chris Linton, Provost and Deputy Vice-Chancellor, said: “I am delighted that we have awarded these Fellowships. The quality of all applications was very strong and the Review Group was extremely impressed with the ambitions contained in them. I am confident that the work that will be undertaken as part of these Fellowships will bring about real benefits to the University.”
Information on the outcomes of the Fellowships will be made available in due course.
