SHELL Theoretical Physics
Shell, together with the Dutch Research School of Theoretical Physics (DRSTP),
launched a new stipend scheme to support young talented theoretical
physicists in the Netherlands. The scheme has been laid out for a period of
three years and incorporates approximately ten stipends per year which will be granted to
the best Master's students in theoretical physics in the Netherlands.
In the past,
Shell hired in the range of five to ten physicists in the Netherlands per
year and is concerned about the decline in number of students in basic and
applied science in the Netherlands and Europe over the last few years. With
these stipends, Shell wishes to emphasize the importance of science education
in the Netherlands and in particular the role played by the Dutch Research
School of Theoretical Physics.
As in 2008 and in 2009, eleven Master's students have been nominated for a Shell
