Through our flagship Lord Kelvin / Adam Smith (LKAS) Readership (Associate Professor) Scheme, we are inviting applications from researchers with the drive and ambition to become our future research leaders. Qualifying candidates should have completed one or more competitively awarded external fellowships, and must meet a range of essential minimum criteria. 

Successful applicants will be appointed to a Research & Teaching contract at Reader Grade 9, and external candidates will be offered a generous start-up package. For further details, please see the candidate flipbook at or the LKAS Readership (Associate Professor) webpage at

LKAS Fellowships and Professorial Appointments
The University also has opportunities for talented researchers, from any discipline, who are either establishing their independent research career (LKAS Fellowships) or who are global leaders in their field (LKAS Professorial Appointments). 

LKAS Fellowships 
The University offers attractive terms to researchers who are applying for externally funded fellowships or who would like to transfer their fellowship to the University. For more information, see
