Chancellor's Fellowships in Data-Driven Innovation (Space & Satellite Analysis)

The University of Edinburgh

SALARY SCALE £39,992- £47,722 (for Grade 8 appointments). Exceptionally, an appointment at Grade 9 (£50,618- £56,950) or even Grade 10 (starting from £58,655)

Applications are invited from early career individuals of the highest potential and attainment who have begun to establish a reputation for the excellent and innovative research and teaching at the forefront of their discipline. The College of Science and Engineering is committed to supporting the next generation of academic leaders in data sciences and artificial intelligence and proposes to appoint up to 10 new Chancellor’s Fellows in Data-Driven Innovation. The Space and Satellite Analysis theme is one of three being led by the College of Science and Engineering and the successful candidates are likely to be hosted in one of the following academic units: the School of GeoSciences, the School of Physics and Astronomy, the School of Engineering or the School of Mathematics; and be allied to the Bayes Centre.

Applications are particularly welcome from candidates with interests in the following areas, however exceptional candidates whose research is related to any area of Space and Satellite Analysis will be considered:

  • The broad area of satellite downstream services and applications from data scientists whose work is applicable to one or many academic disciplines
  • Engineering
  • Physics and Astronomy
  • Statistics, through connections with between Statistics and Data Science generally or Geospatial Statistics or Statistics for the Physical Sciences
  • There are also opportunities to contribute through Stochastic Analysis, Optimisation and Computational Applied Mathematics

You will already have established a reputation for the high quality of your data-driven research and innovation. You will have a commitment to develop your skills in on-line teaching at scale at a University level. Colleagues with translational-industrial, public and third sector linkages, international academics and those interested in interdisciplinary collaboration are particularly welcomed. Relocation support and Immigration Fee Assistance is available for colleagues who need to move to take up the Fellowship. This includes practical support for a spouse or partner.

The culture of the University is open and diverse and we strive to replicate that in our appointments. We are the proud holder of a prestigious Athena SWAN Silver Institution Award recognising our work in supporting the advancement of gender equality in academia. 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. We are committed to support individuals looking to return to research after a career break for family, caring or health reasons. Appointment will be full time (although consideration will be given to those who wish to work part-time) and will be tenure track.
