Fellow (FInstP)

As the highest level of membership attainable within the Institute, fellowship is recognition of your accomplishments in physics and the impact you have made in your sector.

“IOP fellowship means being part of a community of likeminded people who commit to promote physics at a certain standard and to act as a physics role model.” - Dr Yvonne Gründer, Royal Society Research Fellow, Liverpool University

Our fellowship values reflect the benefits of being part of the community:

RECOGNITION – confirm your position as a leading physics professional and receive recognition among your peers for excelling in your sector

OPPORTUNITY – enjoy opportunities to connect and share ideas with other fellows. Build new partnerships and enhance your professional development through innovation and collaboration

INSPIRATION – be a role model for the next generation. As an IOP ambassador, use your experience and enthusiasm to encourage others to study, work and excel in physics

LEADERSHIP – progress the future of physics by helping to strengthen the voice of the Institute. Become an advocate and speak on behalf of the community as its representative

You can find out more about what it means to be a fellow of the Institute by reading these case studies from current fellows.
