Chancellors Fellowships are 5-year tenure track fellowships, designed to provide talented early career researchers with the support required to develop into a leading research-active academic at the University of Edinburgh.

The College of Science and Engineering is seeking to appoint up to 10 Chancellor’s Fellows who have a strong track record (with at least two years at postdoctoral level) in research (which may include innovation and/or impact), and the demonstrated potential to make a leading contribution to the University through furthering the strategic goals of the host School and College.

We are considering applications from researchers from any discipline, and applicants should indicate the most appropriate host School(s) (including the Edinburgh Parallel Computing Centre, EPCC) in Science and Engineering in their application. We therefore suggest candidates could discuss their application with these host School(s).

We welcome applications that address experience of, or demonstrable potential to, develop and lead interdisciplinary initiatives that cross Schools and Colleges. In terms of addressing potential to deliver College and University research strategy, it would be helpful to indicate where applicants, through Chancellor’s Fellowship support, can make a key contribution to research and innovation in an area related to one of the University/College’s priority themes:

  • AI and Datascience
  • Health and Life
  • Climate and Environmental Sustainability

Given the barriers facing female researchers, and those from black, Asian and minority ethnic groups, the scheme aims to appoint at least 50% female and 20% BAME applicants. We therefore strongly encourage applications from these groups. We also are very open to applications from those with non-traditional career paths, including those with family, caring or health career breaks, or those who have moved to academia from a career in another sector.
