The University of Edinburgh is making a major investment in the future of
its academic staff with the appointment of prestigious tenure-track
Fellowships across all disciplines. These 5-year Fellowships are intended
to support outstanding candidates at the start of their independent
academic career. Three of these posts are available in the School of
Philosophy, Psychology and Language Sciences.
The successful candidate for the Language Sciences post will be expected to
contribute to the development of cognitive science -- very broadly defined
-- within Linguistics and English Language, and will help to develop and
contribute teaching to the new MSc programme, Cognition in Science and Society.
A Chancellor`s Fellow will already show the ability to conduct
world-leading research and exhibit clear potential to become an
international leader in their discipline. The Fellow will be able to
concentrate on research in the first instance, acquiring the full duties of
University Lecturer across the period of the Fellowship. Subject to
satisfactory review at the end of 3 years, the Fellow will move to an open
contract on the University academic staff.
Appointment will normally be made on the Lecturer scale (£36,862 -
£44,016), dependent on experience, and in exceptional circumstances a more
senior appointment may be made. Some positions are available with immediate
effect and it is expected that successful applicants will be in post from
