Who we are
Great minds. Innovative solutions.
We are the University of Strathclyde. Our vision is innovative and groundbreaking, placing us amongst the world’s leading international technological universities. We are vibrant, dynamic and passionate about solving the challenges facing society and industry through our cutting-edge, multi-disciplinary research, education and knowledge-exchange with global partners.
We are seeking to appoint extraordinary early career academics who complement our strategic themes.

The School of Government and Public Policy seeks to appoint a Chancellor’s Fellow in computational political science. We are focussed on questions of political behaviour, public policy and international relations, and use a range of quantitative methods to investigate these.
We’d love to hear from you if your research uses computational methods to investigate key political questions. Examples of the methods we would be interested in include: Big Data analysis, computational text analysis, agent-based modelling, network analysis and spatial econometrics. Strong programming skills and the ability to teach programming to our students in data science for politics are vital.
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.
The University of Strathclyde is a socially progressive institution that strives to ensure equality of opportunity and celebrates the diversity of its student and staff community. Strathclyde is people-oriented and collaborative, offering a supportive and flexible working culture with a deep commitment to our equality, diversity and inclusion charters, initiatives, groups and networks.
We strongly encourage applications from Black, Asian and minority ethnicity, women, LGBT+, and disabled candidates and candidates from lower socio-economic groups and care-experienced backgrounds.
You’ll be rewarded with:
* Your Fellowship will normally be at lecturer level (exceptionally, at senior lecturer (Grade 9) (£56,048 - £63,059) 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.
