Strathclyde Chancellor's Fellow in Low Carbon Technologies including CSS Renewables, Energy Storage and Nuclear.
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 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.
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.
