ABOUT THE ROLE
We are seeking exceptional academic colleagues who have research plans which will have a remarkable impact on our disciplines and/or drive development of our Research Peaks, to join our Vice-Chancellor's Fellowship Scheme.
As a Vice Chancellor’s Fellow, you will have a permanent academic role, and for the first three years you will be supported to undertake independent and collaborative research, delivering an agreed research plan to make a significant contribution to the research profile of the University.

Urban Futures is one of Northumbria’s Interdisciplinary Research Themes bringing together expertise from across the University to address pressing regional, societal and global challenges. Urban Futures is working to improve quality of life and sustainability in urban areas, taking a fundamentally human-centred approach to challenges that include rapidly changing population demographics, housing, mobility, service provision, health and wellbeing, public order, community cohesion and inclusiveness, environmental footprint, uneven urban development, and climate change.
We are seeking to appoint researchers with exceptional track records to help drive forward the work within this research theme. Appointed Fellows can be based in any discipline relevant to the challenges above, including the built environment, transport, environmental science, human geography, computer and data science, interaction design, policy development, health informatics, and politics and economics.
The CDT for Citizen-Centred AI (CCAI) is one of twelve new UKRI Centres for Doctoral Training (CDTs) focused on the applications and implications of artificial intelligence (AI).

Our students’ research will span multiple disciplines including AI and data science, participatory and co-design, digital civics, human computer interaction, ethics and legal frameworks, politics and social science.
