Chancellor's Fellow - Energy

Building on the outstanding successes of our previous tenure-track Chancellor’s Fellowship programmes and our world class research performance, the College of Science & Engineering is investing in a further cohort of 10 next generation research innovation leaders of the highest quality with a particular focus on:

  • Biotechnology
  • Data Driven innovation
  • Extreme Conditions
  • Energy
  • Materials and Manufacture
  • Risk and Resilience

Based in the heart of one of the world’s finest cities, these prestigious 5-year awards support early career researchers and academic innovators of the highest promise from all countries to develop their careers in a supportive, high quality environment. You will concentrate initially on world class research and innovation, with a focus on delivering high impact results. We will support you, through the course of your fellowship, to develop your contribution to education and the full spectrum of our activities, thus developing you as a fully rounded member of our academic community. It is anticipated that following a successful review the majority of Chancellors Fellows will transition to an open-ended post at an appropriate grade.

Energy represents a substantial, broad, and highly interdisciplinary theme within the College of Science and Engineering, which includes: the discovery of new materials for energy harvesting, generation, storage, and transformation (Chemistry and Physics); the development of new devices incorporating new materials and energy technologies (Engineering); the efficient and robust delivery of diverse forms of energy (Engineering, Informatics, and Mathematics); the study and mitigation of the impact of energy generation on climate and natural resources (GeoSciences); and the formulation of policy and governance required to ensure a secure and sustainable energy system (GeoSciences, Informatics, Mathematics).

Applications in the following areas are encouraged:

  • Materials for energy harvesting, storage, and transformation
  • Development of new devices incorporating new materials and energy technologies
  • Efficient and robust delivery of diverse forms of energy
  • Mitigation of impact of energy generation on climate and natural resources
  • Formulation of policy and governance required to ensure secure and sustainable energy systems
