Christina Miller Research Fellowship

The University of Edinburgh - College of Science and Engineering - School of Chemistry

The School of Chemistry’s Christina Miller Fellowships provide career development opportunities for outstanding early career researchers who will contribute to increasing the diversity within the School community. We seek exceptional candidates with a completed PhD in Chemistry or a closely related subject, who can demonstrate the potential for independent research and a future academic career. Although the successful candidate may contribute to teaching to a limited degree, the primary role will be to turn her/his existing research into further high-quality publications and to develop new, independent research in their area of interest.

These fellowships are specifically to encourage talented postdoctoral researchers from minorities (gender, race, disability, disadvantaged background, etc.) who are traditionally less likely to follow an academic career and who often lack the confidence to apply directly to independent 5-year Fellowships. We have chosen to name them after Dr Christina Cruickshank Miller (29 August 1899 - 16 July 2001), in order to celebrate her outstanding achievements as a researcher at the University of Edinburgh and one of the first five women (also the first female chemist) elected to the Royal Society of Edinburgh.

The post is full time and fixed term for 24 months. The post is available from September 2018.

Closing Date: Thursday 15th March 2018 at 5pm (GMT)
