Chancellor’s Fellowships

Opportunities as part of the University's College of Science and Engineering.

To support the next generation of academic research and innovation leaders, the College of Science and Engineering proposes to appoint up to 10 new Chancellor’s Fellows.

The School of Physics and Astronomy is leading on the recruitment of Fellows in the area of:

  • Extreme Conditions/Astrobiology

Specifically, the School expects a key output from the Chancellor’s Fellowships to be closer links to the Centre for Science at Extreme Conditions and the UK Centre for Astrobiology, bringing new projects with industry that will create significant opportunities for cross-fertilization of our algorithm research with exploitation of IP from big science projects.  

The School is also involved in the recruitment of Fellows in the following areas which are led by other Schools which form part of the College of Science and Engineering.  These are also likely to be of interest to physicists and astronomers:

  • Biotechnology
  • Energy
  • Living with Data
As recognized by our Juno Champion and Athena SWAN Silver awards, the School of Physics and Astronomy is committed to advancing gender equality and we aim to ensure that our culture and systems support flexible and family-friendly working. We recognise and value diversity across all our staff and students.
