Strathclyde Chancellor’s Fellowship Scheme

Strathclyde is a leading international technological university focused on delivering excellent teaching and world-class research. We are known for forging strong collaborative links with industry, government, business and the third sector. Challenging conventional wisdom has been fundamental to Strathclyde’s ethos for over 200 years. Today our research activity continues to be of central importance in everything we do – informing our teaching and enabling us to translate outcomes for the benefit of business, industry and society as a whole. We are continually advancing the intensity, quality and international competitiveness of our research.

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.
