Royal Society research fellow joins Glasgow

The Royal Society has appointed a new University Research Fellow at the University of Glasgow – one of 43 across the UK.

Dr Mark Owen has been awarded funding to take up a position at Glasgow where we will focus on discovering the origin of fermion masses at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC).

The University Research Fellowship scheme aims to provide outstanding scientists, who have the potential to become leaders in their chosen fields, with the opportunity to build an independent research career.

The scheme is extremely competitive and fellowships are expected to be strong candidates for permanent posts in universities at the end of their terms.

Dr Owen, who joins from the University of Manchester, commences his fellowship in October.
