The Leicester Institute for Advanced Studies Fellowship programme is one of our core areas of activity, enabling our researchers to build interdisciplinary collaborations with scholars from the UK and beyond. 

LIAS Rutherford Fellows

The Leicester Institute for Advanced Studies Rutherford Fund Fellowship Scheme supports global interdisciplinary research. The scheme is funded by the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy and administered by Universities UK International. Drawing on expertise from across disciplines, our Rutherford Fellows will all contribute to the overarching theme of Resilient, Inclusive and Sustainable Cities.

This particular opportunity encourages collaborations between Fellows and academics from across Leicester’s three colleges in tackling global urban challenges and empowering cities to drive change. The Rutherford Fellows will launch their research projects with an initial event focussing on Sustainable Cities, hosted by Professor Paul van Gardingen.
