The Strathclyde Chancellor’s Fellowship Scheme


Established in 1796 as “a place of useful learning”, this year we are celebrating 50 years of the award of our Royal Charter status. As a leading international technological university we focus on research, education and knowledge exchange that crosses traditional boundaries to address the important challenges facing our world today. Our distinctive vision has led to our recent awards of Times Higher Education Entrepreneurial University of the Year 2013/14 and Times Higher Education UK University of the Year 2012/13

Through the Strathclyde Chancellor’s Fellowship Scheme we are seeking to appoint up to 20 exceptional early career academics in strategically important research areas. The Fellowships will normally be appointed at Lecturer level and will offer an accelerated academic career, with the expectation that candidates will achieve promotion within the 5 year Fellowship period. Fellows who meet the criteria for promotion by the end of the 5 year period and continue to demonstrate a strategic fit in terms of research interests, will continue in an open-ended ("tenured" equivalent) academic appointment at the appropriate level. Exceptionally, where a candidate has an established track record in research leadership, appointments may initially be made at Senior Lecturer level with an expectation that promotion to Reader level will be attained within 5 years.

The Fellowship will offer the opportunity to grow the research portfolio through a reduced teaching load and limited administrative duties over the initial years, supported by the University’s academic probationary arrangements. As the Fellowship progresses an appropriate range of duties will be allocated, with mentoring support, to enable the Fellow to establish a balance of research, teaching, knowledge exchange and citizenship responsibilities where they will demonstrate the leadership and independence as appropriate to support their long term academic career.
