The Simon Fellowship Scheme uses a generous endowment to appoint a number of Research Fellows each year in the Social Sciences, broadly defined and including the history of science, technology and medicine. The Fellowship is intended for an outstanding researcher who has completed a doctoral degree or research to an equivalent standard. A record of research and publications or demonstrated potential for research in relevant subject areas is essential. For 2007-08 there is one post at a salary of £26,666 – £32,796 or £33,779 – £ 41,545 p.a, plus up to £1,000 expenses. The closing date for applications in 19/12/2006.
In the past decade three Simon Fellowships have been held in the Centre for the History of Science, Technology and Medicine.
