Phillippa Cooper

15 April 2019

The School of Chemistry is delighted to congratulate Phillippa Cooper, a postgraduate student in John Bower's group, who has been awarded a highly prestigious Lindemann Trust Fellowship.

Lindemann Trust Fellowships are extremely competitive, and enable exceptional graduates to carry out postdoctoral research in the USA, gaining invaluable experience and exposure.

Up to three Fellowships are awarded by the English-Speaking Union annually. They last for one year, and are each worth $50,000, plus a £1000 travel grant.

The Lindemann Trust is founded on a legacy left by Brigadier Charles Lindemann, and supports research in the fields of astronomy, biophysics, chemistry, engineering, geology, geophysics, mathematics and physics.

Philippa will be working with Professor Keary Engle at the Scripps Research Institute, La Jolla, USA.

Congratulations again to Philippa, and we hope her success inspires all of our brilliant PhD students to continue to apply for these prestigious awards.
