The University of Edinburgh, a global top 20 University located in one of the world`s finest cities, continues to invest in the future of its academic staff with the appointment of a cohort of 50 tenure-track Chancellor’s Fellowships across all disciplines. These 5-year Fellowships are intended to support candidates at the start of their independent academic careers. Subject to satisfactory review at the end of year 3, the Fellow will then move to a standard University academic open-ended contract. It is anticipated that most appointees will be successful in obtaining an open ended contract.

UE people have been making their mark on the world for more than four centuries. They’ve explored space, revolutionised surgery, won Nobel Prizes, published era-defining books, paved the way for life-saving medical breakthroughs and laid the foundations for solving the mysteries of the universe.

UE are looking for highly talented academics who will contribute to our continued achievement of excellence in research. Colleagues addressing data intensive research are encouraged. You will already be working in an independent research capacity and will be developing your reputation for high quality research. Chancellor’s Fellows also make an important contribution to enriching student learning experiences through their research, teaching and personal tutoring. You will concentrate on research initially, but will be trained in teaching skills and progressively take up this core academic activity. As we are a global University, we are interested in candidates from any location and we can offer relocation support. The culture of the University is open and diverse and we strive to replicate that in our appointments.

Whilst UE are proud of our rich heritage, UE is a University that looks to the future. UE is a global University with world leading interdisciplinary research capability, ideal for collaborative work as required. By joining UE’s research-led community of international academics you will enjoy excellent career opportunities and support.

Appointment will normally be made on the Grade 8 Academic scale (£37,756-£45,053), dependent on experience. In exceptional circumstances a more senior appointment may be made.

This is an excellent opportunity to be part of one of the world’s top Universities where you will develop your career in a stimulating, friendly and diverse environment that nurtures talent and rewards success.

UE welcome applications from everyone irrespective of gender or ethnic group. 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.
