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 Professors / Readers - in areas of strategic importance.  One area of importance is Low Carbon Technologies including CSS Renewables, Energy Storage and Nuclear. 

This multi-disciplinary research area includes research that addresses major challenges in the key areas of cost-effective carbon neutral or carbon free energy generation and energy/carbon storage. Breakthroughs in generation systems using onshore and offshore wind, hydro, marine, geothermal, biomass & biofuels are needed alongside the effective development, management of integration of nuclear facilities.  This is required to achieve the economics, scale and reliability at the costs demanded of many national policy commitments. Similarly, the storage of energy and through distributed and grid-scale deployment, as well as carbon capture storage and transport schemes represent key materials and technology challenges.  

Our Professors and Readers enjoy a range of benefits, including a generous remuneration package; notable additional financial and non-financial benefits; excellent start-up support; initially reduced teaching and management load; and regular career review, with the opportunity to receive additional remuneration in recognition of extraordinary contribution.
