The School of Engineering is pleased to invite applications for the 2023 Elizabeth Georgeson Research Fellowship. This three-year Fellowship specifically supports early-career (postdoctoral) researchers form backgrounds that are under-represented in engineering research and academia (e.g. gender, minority ethnicity, disability, disadvantaged circumstances, etc.). The Fellowship aims to provide a supportive and collegial environment for early-careers researchers to develop new independent research, with a view to raising external research funding to conduct that research and establish an independent academic career. In this 2023 round of the Elizabeth Georgeson Fellowship scheme, we will therefore be prioritising applications from candidates who self-identify as female. Candidates of minority ethnic groups in the UK of all genders, with/without disabilities or other characteristics under-represented in Engineering are also encouraged to apply.
The Bioimaging Facility at Edinburgh University offers both multiphoton imaging and spectral characterisation for a wide range of samples from both biological and material sciences. This service is available to staff, students and external users.
The Atomic Force Microscopy Facility at the University of Edinburgh houses a Bruker JPK NanoWizard 4XP and JPK CellHesion 200 AFM for the structural, mechanical and surface characterisation of samples across a range of environmental conditions.
This facility is available to all researchers across the university as well as external users from other universities and industry.
