Rutherford Discovery Fellowship Round 2021 – Update for Research Offices and Applicants

Due to the current Covid-19 outbreak and lock-down, we have adjusted the timeline for the Rutherford Discovery Fellowship assessment process.

  • We now expect that all applicants will be notified by mid-September if they have been invited to interview.
  • Interviews will take place on October 18-19.
  • We are hoping that interviews can take place in person under alert level 1 or 2. If this is not possible, we will most likely look to interview via zoom instead.

More information on the interview process will be provided after the interview short-listing.
