University of Stirling

At the University of Stirling, ‘being the difference’ is in everything we do. We take pride in delivering an education based on innovation and excellence, and our groundbreaking research is transforming global societies.

To support our strategic ambitions, we are looking to build on our existing research and teaching strengths, and appoint more than 30 exceptional academics, across a wide range of disciplines.

With three-quarters of our research ranked world-leading and internationally-excellent (Research Excellence Framework 2014), our interdisciplinary research has a positive impact on communities worldwide. We collaborate with international governments and policymakers, businesses, industry, and charitable organisations, to provide solutions to some of the toughest global societal challenges.

Stirling’s outstanding learning and teaching standards are recognised by students and employers. With a satisfaction rate of 89% in the National Student Survey, we were above the Scottish and UK sector average; we were ranked first in Scotland and third in the UK for university graduate employability; and top in Scotland for welcoming international students, in the International Student Barometer.
As we celebrate our 50th anniversary, our ambitions don’t stop there.

We have targets to: be one of the top 25 universities in the UK; increase income by £50 million; and enhance our research profile by 100 per cent.

If you share our commitment to making a difference to global societies, join us as we enter this exciting phase of interdisciplinary research growth and educational innovation.
