Rosalind Franklin Fellowship

10 October 2012

Fourteen new Rosalind Franklin Fellows have recently been installed, including astronomer Dr Karina Isabel Caputi and social scientist Dr Constanza Parra. In 2007 the University of Groningen initiated the prestigious Rosalind Franklin Fellowship programme, that is primarily directed at women in industry, academia or research institutes who have a PhD and ambitions to become a full professor at a European top research university.

The weekly online video magazine Unifocus highlights topics related to the University of Groningen in the fields of research and society, student life, teaching, policy and internationalization.
