Career Track Fellows
|Job Type||Full Time|
|Closing Date||08 October 2018|
The Roslin Institute at the University of Edinburgh is offering up to four Career Track Fellowships to be taken up in 2019. The Institute is strategically supported by the UK Biotechnology and Biological Sciences Research Council (BBSRC) and is embedded within the vibrant research culture of a global university. The Roslin Institute is a world leader in research and innovation in farmed animal breeding, production, health and welfare, and aims to deliver knowledge, skills and technologies in the BBSRC priority area of Agriculture and Food Security. The Institute also has rapidly emerging expertise in developing and applying large animals of human disease, thereby contributing to the BBSRC priority area of Bioscience for Health. Applications are welcomed across all areas of our animal bioscience portfolio (www.roslin.ed.ac.uk/research).
Career Track Fellowships are 5 year, fixed-term but tenure-track, appointments designed to enable early career scientists with the potential to become tenured group leaders within the Institute to develop an independent, internationally leading research programme within the field of animal bioscience. Fellows are also expected to contribute to the student learning experience through their research, teaching and personal tutoring.
The culture of the University is open and diverse and we strive to replicate that in our appointments. Whilst we are proud of our rich heritage, we are a University that looks to the future. We are a global University with world leading research capability. By joining our research-led community of international academics you will enjoy excellent career opportunities and support. Fellows will be provided with a support package, comprising start-up funds, a research support post and an annual consumables budget. Fellows will also benefit from extensive training in research management, personal development and mentoring, in line with the Edinburgh Scientific Academic Track (ESAT), and are expected to raise external funding to develop their own research programmes.
Candidates will need to have a strong publication record, a clear research vision and funding programme, and a strategy for exploiting the resources, capabilities and expertise available at The Roslin Institute and in the wider University.
These fixed term appointments will normally be made on the Grade 8 Academic scale, dependent on experience. Fellows will be assessed during their appointment for progression to Group Leader/Senior Research Fellow status within the University of Edinburgh. Only in exceptional circumstances will a more senior appointment be made.
