Ramsay Fellowship

The Ramsay Memorial Fellowships were instituted in 1920 as a memorial to Sir William Ramsay (1852-1916). The Fellowships are offered to postdoctoral chemists in the early stages of their career who have some postdoctoral research experience so that they may initiate a program of original and independent research.

Sir William Ramsay was a professor of inorganic and general chemistry at University College, London, from 1887-1913. He is Britain's first recipient of the Nobel Prize in Chemistry for his discovery of the noble gases in 1904.
