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).
Chancellor’s Fellows in the Extreme Science/Astrobiology theme will pursue research linked to CSEC and the UK Centre for Astrobiology, also based at Edinburgh. The Fellows will be based in the College of Science and Engineering and will draw on areas of current research excellence across Schools associated with CSEC.
Chancellors Fellows in the ‘Materials and Manufacture’ theme will pursue research that has a strong application focus, probably involving industrial and/or end-user partners. The fellows will draw upon areas of current research excellence across Biological Sciences, Chemistry, Engineering, Informatics and Mathematics.
The University of Edinburgh is one of four Universities within a Scottish and Northern Ireland consortium that has successfully attained a £4 million grant to improve information superiority for the Ministry of Defence.
