Our department

The School of Humanities wishes to appoint a Chancellor’s Fellow with research expertise in one or more of the fields of Race, Migration, Postcolonial Studies. We already have multi-disciplinary expertise in areas such as: race and digital health; queer postcolonial writing; diaspora and migration; transnational history; histories of decolonisation. We now aim to support the development of an outstanding early/mid-career researcher whose work creates synergies between research areas across the School, as well as facilitating further inter-disciplinary collaboration across the Faculty.

We invite applications that connect to one or more of our core disciplines (English Literature and Creative Writing; History; Journalism, Media and Communication; Modern Languages). We particularly welcome candidates whose research sits within the School’s broad research themes: Heritage, Culture and Place; Communication, Language and Translation; or Gender. The successful applicant would teach in their home discipline, as well as contributing to research-led curriculum development at School/Faculty level.

The opportunity

We would love to hear from you if you have a PhD and postdoctoral research experience; an emerging publication history in high quality academic journals; and research interests which align with this area of strategic priority – particularly if you already hold an external fellowship that can be transferred to us.

In keeping with our commitment to equality and diversity, we encourage applications from all sections of the community, particularly those who can support our Athena SWAN activity, which inspires the advancement and representation of women in higher education.  For more information on diversity and inclusion at Strathclyde, please see here.

  • Growth of your research portfolio
  • Reduced teaching load and limited administrative duties over the initial years of your Fellowship
  • Support through our academic career development framework to meet your training needs and enhance your effectiveness – allowing you to be ready for promotion within 5-years of your appointment
  • Mentoring, to help you establish a balance of research, teaching, knowledge exchange and citizenship responsibilities while enhancing your leadership qualities to support your long-term career.

* Your Fellowship will normally be at lecturer level (exceptionally, at senior lecturer (Grade 9) (£52,560 - £59,135) where you have a strong track record in research leadership) for 5 years, with the expectation that you’ll meet our promotion criteria within that period and be transferred to senior lecturer (or, where you’ve been appointed as a senior lecturer, Reader) level.
