Chancellor’s Fellow 

University of Edinburgh - Centre for Tropical Livestock Genetics and Health

The Roslin Institute of the University of Edinburgh is seeking a Chancellor’s Fellow who will contribute to the recently established Centre for Tropical Livestock Genetics and Health. You will contribute to the Institute's strategic position in animal biosciences, genetics and disease, with the overriding aim to advance animal breeding and positively impact on disease mitigation (lifelong health).

We are looking for a highly talented academic who will contribute to our continued achievement of excellence in research. Fellows also make an important contribution to enriching student learning experiences through their research, teaching and personal tutoring. You will concentrate on research initially, but will be trained in teaching skills and progressively take up this core academic activity. The culture of the University is open and diverse and we strive to replicate that in our appointments.

You will need to have a strong publication record, demonstrated ability to attract external research funding and a strategy of how they will exploit the range of resources, capabilities and expertise available at The Roslin Institute (large, companion animals and poultry, veterinary clinical samples, sequencing and bioinformatics, proteomics, behaviour and welfare, pathology and imaging and genetic engineering).

Fellows will be assessed at the end of their fourth year for progression to Group Leader/Senior Research Fellow status within the University of Edinburgh.

This is an excellent opportunity to be part of one of the world’s top Universities where you will develop your career in a stimulating, friendly and diverse environment that nurtures talent and rewards success.

We welcome applications from everyone irrespective of gender or ethnic group. As women and members of ethnic minorities are currently under-represented in posts at this level we particularly encourage applications from members of these groups.
