Chancellors Fellowships

University of Edinburgh - Institute of Regeneration and Repair IRR

The College of Medicine and Veterinary Medicine, part of the University of Edinburgh, a global top 20 University located in one of the world`s finest cities, is keen to attract early career researchers for appointment as Chancellor’s Fellows. Applications are welcomed in the area of tissue regeneration and repair in the following areas:

1 Novel chemistries and materials applied to the production of artificial niches for stem cell and tissue repair

2 Computational biology and bioinformatics applied to stem cells and regeneration.

There will be strong research links between the IRR and the existing University strengths in: 1 the Physical Sciences and/or Engineering 2 computational biology and bioinformatics.

These 5-year Fellowships are intended to support candidates at the start of their independent academic careers. Subject to satisfactory review at the end of year 4, Fellows will then move to a standard University academic open-ended contract. It is anticipated that most appointees will be successful in obtaining an open ended contract.

We are looking for highly talented academics who will contribute to our continued achievement of excellence in research and have the opportunity to flourish in a high energy research environment. You will already be working in an independent research capacity and will be developing your reputation for high quality research. Chancellor’s Fellows are also expected to make an important contribution to enriching student learning experiences through both postgraduate supervision and undergraduate teaching. You will concentrate on research initially, but will be trained in teaching skills and progressively take up this core academic activity.

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. As a global University, we are interested in attracting candidates working in all parts of the world and can offer relocation support.
