Schmidt Science Fellows
A new scheme supported by MPLS, aimed at graduate students completing their DPhil studies between May 1 2017 and June 30 2018. In partnership with the Rhodes Trust, the Schmidt Science Fellows program aims to equip the next generation of leaders and innovators with the tools and opportunities to drive world-changing advances across the sciences and society by giving them a year of scientific broadening between their PhD and the start of their research career.
