Building on the success of our previous Chancellor’s Fellowship recruitment programmes over the last two years and given our continuing strong performance, the University of Edinburgh, a global top 20 University located in one of the world’s finest cities, intends to appoint up to 50 tenure-track Chancellor’s Fellowships across the University’s 22 Schools as a further major investment in the future of our teaching and research. These prestigious awards are aimed at early independent research career individuals of the highest potential who have begun to establish a reputation for the quality of their research at the forefront of their discipline and who have a commitment to teaching and student support at university level.

The Fellowship may be held in any discipline or interdisciplinary area that fits within the strategic aims of the University and its Schools/Centres. It is essential that the successful candidate’s research furthers the high international reputation of the School and the University and that she or he has a strong commitment to postgraduate and undergraduate education. 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, progressively 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.
