Strathclyde Chancellor’s Fellow in Analytical, Biomaterials and Physical Chemistry.

Strathclyde Global Talent Programme

Be bold.  Be innovative.  Be a 'Strathclyder'

We are the University of Strathclyde. Our vision is bold and ground breaking, placing us amongst the world’s leading international technological universities. We are vibrant, dynamic and passionate about solving the challenges facing society and industry through our cutting-edge, multi-disciplinary research, education and knowledge-exchange with global partners. 

Through our Strathclyde Global Talent Programme we will recruit up to 60 outstanding academic colleagues – including Strathclyde Chancellor’s Fellows - in areas of strategic importance.  One area of importance is Analytical, Biomaterials and Physical Chemistry. 

This multi-disciplinary research area includes research that addresses major challenges in the key areas of:

  • Analytical Chemistry – Focusing on a broad range of areas with current strengths such as vibrational spectroscopy, process analytical chemistry and chemometrics, we are looking to expand this range of activity and are particularly interested in analytical chemistry research within mass spectrometry, electrochemistry or fluorescent sensing 
  • Biomaterials Chemistry – This chemistry is a growing strength within Strathclyde. We use current expertise to focus on using biology to inspire new materials design with controlled functionalities and using biomolecules as building blocks for new materials.  
  • Physical Chemistry - Research in physical chemistry can be found in several of our research sections.  This is an area we are looking to expand and perform our research to further our understanding and application of this science. 

Normally appointed at Lecturer level, the Fellowship will last for 5 years during which you will be supported to establish your career as a research leader and achieve rapid career progression. Fellows who meet the criteria for promotion by the end of the 5 year period will be transferred to an open-ended ("tenured" equivalent) academic appointment.  You will also benefit from research portfolio growth, reduced teaching load and administrative duties and a range of support.

You will hold a PhD, have postdoctoral research experience, an emerging high quality publications record and research interests which align with our strategic focus.  You must be able to articulate your research vision.
