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 seeking to appoint extraordinary early career academics who align with our strategic priorities.

Journalism, Media and Communication is a growing unit within the School of Humanities at Strathclyde. As well as our undergraduate programme, we offer postgraduate degrees in Media & Communication, Digital Journalism and Applied Gender Studies. Continuing to expand our provision at postgraduate level – including through recruitment to PhDs in Journalism, Media and Communication and in Gender Studies – is a strategic priority. Our current research is clustered around four main areas: Gender and Media; Political Communications; Social Media; and Media, Health, Trauma and Wellbeing. Within this, we have particular strengths in the analysis of the UK/Scottish media landscape and our staff – and postgraduate students– work closely with a wide range of external partners in alignment with Strathclyde’s mission to be a place of useful learning.
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.
