Roles & how to apply

Application information for the roles in Space & Satellite Analysis and Digital Technologies

Application information

The aim of the recruitment round is to support the next generation of academic research and innovation leaders in data sciences and artificial intelligence. Specifically, the School expects a key output from the Chancellor’s Fellowships to be closer links to the Higgs Centre for Innovation, 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.  

Candidates are expected to have a PhD in Physics or Astronomy and present clear evidence of their potential to undertake leading research in collaboration with industrial partners. The selection criteria will reflect this and involve the individual’s scientific excellence, their capacity to contribute to knowledge exchange, and their track record in obtaining external funding for such projects.

A commitment to excellence in undergraduate teaching is essential for all academic posts. The successful applicants will be expected to teach and to contribute to curriculum development at undergraduate and postgraduate level. This includes lecture courses across the School’s undergraduate programme, and supervision of projects for undergraduate students as well as PhD students. The teaching will be increased to a full load over the duration of the Fellowship.

Holders of personal fellowships are welcomed.
