Chancellor's Fellow in Electronics

University of Edinburgh - School of Engineering

College of Science and Engineering

The University of Edinburgh is an internationally renowned Research University, amongst the world’s top 20 institutions of higher education, and located in one of the world’s finest cities. The School of Engineering reflects all of the University’s principal characteristics, with a cosmopolitan academic staff numbering over 110, and with a body of 1,450 undergraduate and 500 postgraduate students drawn from all over the world. We carry out internationally excellent teaching and research, attracting high-calibre students and an excellent level of research funding.

Building on our continued world-class research and teaching performance, we are seeking to appoint a tenure track Chancellor’s Fellow whose track record places them among the world’s brightest early career researchers. In this prestigious post, initially, you will focus on research and innovation, whilst gradually taking on teaching duties, reaching a full teaching portfolio after 5 years. At that stage, it is intended that you will be on an open-ended academic contract, subject to satisfactory review at year 3. An important focus of this Fellowship is to extend and develop our existing industrial collaboration and impact.

You will have begun to establish a reputation for the quality of your research in either academia or industry and will have a commitment to enhancing teaching and student support at University level in Electronic Engineering with a research focus on Analogue and Mixed-Signal Integrated Circuit (IC) Design, in particular on integrated sensor systems to exploit our leading position in Single-Photon Avalanche Detectors (SPADs). This research enjoys excellent collaboration with STMicroelectronics, and there are strong prospects for engagement with other companies, including in Edinburgh and beyond.

The culture of the School of Engineering and the University is open and diverse and we are committed to reflecting that in our appointment process.

Closing Date: 01-NOV-2016 at 5pm GMT
