The University of Edinburgh intends to appoint up to 100 Chancellor’s Fellows across the University’s 22 Schools as an investment in the future of teaching and research.
These prestigious awards are aimed at early-career individuals of exceptional potential who have begun to establish a reputation for the highest quality research at the forefront of their discipline and who have a commitment to learning and teaching at university level.
The School of Health in Social Science envisages making up to 4 Chancellor’s Fellowship appointments. Outstanding applicants in any area of the School’s research activity are encouraged to apply.
However, we are particularly interested in researchers with a demonstrated track record in addressing the following strategic growth areas in the School, and those with the skills and interest to flourish in an interdisciplinary environment. Although research excellence is the main criteria for appointment, we will also consider potential teaching ability, and balance across the School.
The School of health in Social Science conducts research, knowledge exchange activities and education through four subject areas:
As a Chancellor’s Fellow, you will be part of our strategic plans to intensify research activity, building on our 2008 RAE outcomes. We aim to advance interdisciplinary research that is routed in our subject areas in key fields that build on our integrated research and educational strengths:
We look forward to welcoming enthusiastic aspiring academic leaders to join the School and work with us to contribute to shaping policy and practice in a way that is founded on the principles of leadership and citizenship.
We anticipate the fellowships starting on Grade 7 with the opportunity for successful appointees to progress to Grade 8 after 3 years.
