The University of Edinburgh, a global top 20 University located in
one of the world’s fine cities, is making a major investment in the
future of its academic staff with the appointment 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 career. Up to 100 positions are available.
A Chancellor’s Fellow will already show the ability to conduct
world-leading research and exhibit clear potential to become an
international leader in their discipline. The Fellow will be able to
concentrate on research in the first instance, acquiring the full duties
of University Lecturer across the period of the Fellowship. Subject to
satisfactory review at the end of 3 years, the Fellow will move to an
open contract on the University academic staff.
Appointment will normally be made on the Lecturer scale (£36,862 -
£44,016), dependent on experience, and in exceptional circumstances a
more senior appointment may be made. Some positions are available with
immediate effect and it is expected that successful applicants will be
in post from August 2012.
Applications containing a detailed CV and a 1-page outline of a proposed research programme should be made online at www.jobs.ed.ac.uk to meet one of the closing dates below. General advice may be obtained by emailing email@example.com and specific details may be obtained from the appropriate Head of School.
