The University of Edinburgh, a global top 20 University located in one of the world‘s finest cities, is making a further major investment in the future of its academic staff with the appointment of a second cohort of prestigious tenure-track Fellowships across all disciplines.
These 5-year Fellowships are intended to support outstanding candidates at the start of their independent academic careers.
Up to 50 positions are available.
We are looking for highly talented academics who will contribute to our continued achievement of excellence in research. Colleagues addressing data intensive research are encouraged. You will already be working in an independent research capacity and will be developing your reputation for high quality research. Chancellor’s Fellows also make an important contribution to enriching student learning experiences through their research, teaching and personal tutoring. You will concentrate on research initially, but will be trained in teaching skills and progressively take up this core academic activity. As we are a global University, we are interested in candidates from any location and we can offer relocation support. The culture of the University is open and diverse and we strive to replicate that in our appointments.We welcome applications from everyone irrespective of gender or ethnic group. As women and members of ethnic minorities are currently under-represented in posts at this level we particularly encourage applications from members of these groups.
Successful applicants will normally be appointed at Grade 8 (£37,756 - £45,053), dependent on experience. In exceptional circumstances a more senior appointment may be made.
The Fellow will be able to concentrate on research in the first instance with a limited amount of teaching, progressively acquiring the full duties of University Lecturer across the 5 year period of the Fellowship.
Subject to satisfactory review at the end of 3 years, the Fellow will move to an open-ended contract.
It is anticipated most appointments will be successful in obtaining an open-ended contract.
