Rutherford Discovery Fellowships awarded to rising stars of research

On: 30 September 2014

Ten of New Zealand’s most talented early-to-mid-career researchers have been awarded Rutherford Discovery Fellowships for 2014.

The Fellowships foster the development of future research leaders by providing funding of up to $800,000 each over five years to cover salary and research costs. The funding is administered by the Royal Society of New Zealand on behalf of the Ministry of Business Innovation and Employment.

This initiative seeks to attract, retain and grow New Zealand’s up-and-coming talent by enabling promising researchers to establish a track record for future research leadership.
