Strathclyde Chancellor's Fellow in Ocean, Air & Space

Strathclyde Global Talent Programme
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.

Through our Strathclyde Global Talent Programme we will recruit up to 75 outstanding academics - including Strathclyde Chancellor's Fellows - in areas of strategic importance. One area of importance is Ocean, Air & Space.

Our ocean, air and space theme aims to underpin the development of technologies that focus on innovation, performance, sustainability and safety. Our work supports ocean & space environments, space exploration and air & maritime transportation.

There is a need for future aerospace and naval systems that are more efficient and more resilient than what is available today. These new systems must be capable of completing more advanced tasks and missions to contribute to a safer and more sustainable world.

If your ocean, air & space research focuses on any of the following areas, we'd love to hear from you:
  • Satellite & space systems
  • Sustainable transport
  • Risk, safety & reliability (resilience)
  • Remote sensing
  • Robotics & autonomy
  • Ocean engineering
Normally appointed at Lecturer level (exceptionally at Senior Lecturer), the Fellowship will last for 5 years during which you will be supported to establish your career as a research leader and achieve rapid career progression. Fellows who meet the criteria for promotion by the end of the 5 year period will be transferred to an open-ended (tenured equivalent) academic appointment. You will also benefit from research portfolio growth, reduced teaching load and administrative duties and a range of support.

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.

Closing Date: Sunday 4th November 2018.
