Strathclyde Chancellor’s Fellow in Developing Scotland’s Education System of the Future.  

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 Developing Scotland’s Education System of the Future.  

The School of Education is currently Scotland’s leading provider of teacher education and has an uncontested track record of research and KE, together with community engagement and volunteering in areas associated with curricula areas. Building upon this profile, this multi-disciplinary research area includes research that addresses the key areas of social and curricula challenges that Scotland’s education system faces.  This focus in our research builds capacity and evidences the success of Strathclyde’s approach to school education.

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.
