School of GeoSciences

Chancellor's Fellowships

The School of GeoSciences is inviting applications from early career individuals of the highest potential and attainment who have begun to establish a reputation for excellence and innovative research and teaching within the broad themes of 'Living the Data'; 'Energy'; 'Risk and Resilience' and 'Extreme Conditions'.

Building on the outstanding successes of our previous tenure-track Chancellor’s Fellowship programmes and our world class research performance, the College of Science & Engineering is investing in a further cohort of 10 next generation research innovation leaders of the highest quality across the themes of Living with Data; Energy; Risk and Resilience; Extreme Conditions; Biotechnology and Materials and Manufacture.  

Based in the heart of one of the world’s finest cities, these prestigious 5-year awards support early career researchers and academic innovators of the highest promise from all countries to develop their careers in a supportive, high quality environment. You will concentrate initially on world class research and innovation, with a focus on delivering high impact results. We will support you, through the course of your fellowship, to develop your contribution to education and the full spectrum of our activities, thus developing you as a fully rounded member of our academic community. It is anticipated that following a successful review Chancellors Fellows will transition to an open-ended post at an appropriate grade.

The School of GeoSciences is particularly interested in receiving applications from candidates interested in making a contribution to our research and teaching within the following themes.  Further information on the opportunities and our current activity is available from the following pages:
