The School of Geosciences, University of Edinburgh is advertising Chancellors Fellowships. Closing date is the 7th of Feb @ 17:00 GMT. These fellowships are designed for excellent early career independent researchers who want to make the transition to being academics. They are for five years in the first instance with the expectation that the Fellow would move to a standard academic open ended contract after three years.

Chancellors Fellows begin with a very light teaching portfolio and are expected to grow this over the five years of the fellowship. With, after 5 years, a standard academic teaching & admin portfolio.

Within the School of Geosciences *one* of our priority areas is the climate system and composition of the atmosphere in the Anthropocene. Candidates should complement the School’s existing strengths in understanding the modern climate system (including climate change) or the composition of the modern atmosphere, or interactions between both.
