So, I have recently finished my PhD in one of the "pure" sciences, in the UK. I have applied and been successful in obtaining a prestigious and rather lucrative research fellowship for a post doc position at a university in a country abroad (different to UK).
However, I have declined this award due to personal reasons, as I decided that a short-term post doc abroad without further career certainly is not something I want, due to my financial and family situation. Instead, I decided to either :
a) apply for a permanent position in the industry
b) apply for permanent teaching / lectureship positions in my current county of residence at "low" ranking universities / or so-called community colleges that emphasise teaching over research. (This is because I have virtually no chance of getting a permanent position without doing a post doc at a high quality research-orientated department.)
c) Apply only for post docs at "good" departments but only in the location I live now (since this way I will be able to save most of my salary, since I live at home with my parents), and transition to industry at a later date.
In either case, is it a good idea to state the fellowship that I have won, but declined, on either my CV and/or cover letter?
