The School of Chemistry at the University of Edinburgh invites applications for the 2019 Christina Miller Research Fellowship. This three-year Fellowship specifically supports early-career (postdoctoral) researchers with characteristic under-representation in chemistry research and academia. The Fellowship aims to provide a supportive and collegial environment for early-career researchers to develop their research and prepare themselves for future independent roles in academia and beyond.
We seek candidates from diverse backgrounds, who have completed a PhD in Chemistry, or a closely related subject, and can demonstrate the potential for independent research and a future academic career. Although the successful candidate may contribute to teaching to a limited degree, the role will allow for the development of further high-quality publications from existing research; and new, independent research in the successful candidate’s area of interest. This approach is intended to provide foundational experience and confidence to pursue follow-on applications for independent Fellowships.
The School has a strong culture of career development and mentoring, and fully supports the requirement for a sensible work-life balance. We foster a collegiate and supportive environment that values and encourages all of our staff and students.
The Christina Miller Research Fellow will be associated with an existing research group within the School, in order to benefit from existing technical support and infrastructure. They will also be paired with a mentor to provide support and advice.
Fixed-term for 3 years.
