Who we are: Be bold. Be innovative. Be a 'Strathclyder'
We are the University of Strathclyde. Our vision is bold and ground breaking, 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 align with our strategic priorities.
For more information visit the Strathclyde Global Talent Programme Website: www.strath.ac.uk/workwithus/strathclydeglobaltalentprogramme or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
We have a long and distinguished record of high-quality research, particularly into practically relevant problems that arise in real-world applications and settings. We seek excellent candidates to join our internationally recognised research groups:
These areas make substantial contributions across the Department in undergraduate courses, postgraduate courses, teaching, research and knowledge exchange. The Department is flourishing; in the 2019 National Student Survey (NSS), we scored 5th in the UK, our PGT cohort has increased from 30 to over 150 in the last 5 years, and our staff numbers are increasing. We have put in place a number of innovative mechanisms to ensure as much time is given to academics to pursue their research and this is reflected in a growing portfolio of grants. Finally, by tapping into the Strathclyde knowledge exchange ecosystem, we are working at an ever greater scale and producing ever greater impact.
- AI, Data Science and Information Sciences
- Digital Health
- Trusted Programming
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.
In keeping with our commitment to equality and diversity, we encourage applications from all sections of the community, particularly those who can support our Athena SWAN activity, which inspires the advancement and representation of women in higher education.
You’ll be rewarded with:
- Growth of your research portfolio
- Reduced teaching load and limited administrative duties over the initial years of your Fellowship
- Support through our academic career development framework to meet your training needs and enhance your effectiveness – allowing you to be ready for promotion within 5-years of your appointment
- Mentoring, to help you establish a balance of research, teaching, knowledge exchange and citizenship responsibilities while enhancing your leadership qualities to support your long-term career.
* Your Fellowship will normally be at lecturer level (exceptionally, at senior lecturer (Grade 9) (£51,630 - £58,089) 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.
