FEL­LOW­SHIPS AWARDED

The Wellingtonian - - Front Page -

An as­tro­physi­cist – whose fo­cus is on fur­ther­ing our un­der­stand­ing of galaxy clus­ters – and ama­rine botanist have both won the cov­eted Ruther­ford Dis­cov­ery Fel­low­ship worth $800,000 each. Dr Yvette Per­rott and Dr Christo­pher Corn­wall will use the funds to carry out their re­spec­tive re­search at Vic­to­ria Univer­sity of Welling­ton.

The Royal So­ci­ety Te Apa¯rangi awards up to ten fel­low­ships each year from its $8m fund­ing pool. The fel­low­ships are de­signed to sup­port early-to-mid ca­reer science re­searchers in New Zealand.
