Chancellor’s Fellow in Risk, Safety and Reliability
Strathclyde Chancellor’s Fellow in Risk, Safety and Reliability
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 Risk, Safety and Reliability.
This multi-disciplinary research area includes research that addresses major challenges in the key areas of Engineered products and systems which are becoming increasingly complex and interconnected, driven by the pursuit of enhanced performance and efficiency through all life phases. This increased complexity continuously challenges conventional thinking relating to risk, safety and reliability. This in turn demands the development and integration of advanced approaches to identify, evaluate and mitigate against single and systemic failure modes. Solutions to these challenges will involve for example the integration of intelligent agent based systems, Bayesian belief networks, and genetic optimisation to create a holistic and generalizable toolset.
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.

Closing Date: Sunday 24 September 2017.
