The MSCA COFUND supported TRAIN@Ed project provides an opportunity for talented researchers from outside the UK to join the University of Edinburgh to begin their post-PhD career working at the interface between academia and industry.
The University of Edinburgh is a world-leading research institution. For more than four centuries, our staff and students have made history. With a research strategy that emphasises both a positive working environment, internationalisation and early career researcher development, we are committed to developing the future generations of researchers.
Building on the outstanding successes of our previous Chancellor’s Fellowship programmes and our world class research performance, we are investing in a pre-tenure track fellowship scheme, designed for the career researcher that brings together academic rigour with the variety of opportunity found in industry. Along with a three year individual fellowship the scheme will train as a cohort to have the skills toolkit required for a career in research either through university or business. The scheme will have a particular focus on the following thematic areas:
• Data Science and Innovation
• Food and Beverages
• Energy and Marine Energy
• Life and Medical Sciences
• Creative Industries
• Financial and Business Services
Based in the heart of one of the world’s finest cities, these prestigious 3-year awards support early career researchers of the highest promise from outside the UK to develop their careers in a supportive environment.
The University of Edinburgh holds a Silver Athena SWAN award in recognition of our commitment to advance gender equality in higher education. We are members of the Race Equality Charter and we are also Stonewall Scotland Diversity Champions, actively promoting LGBT equality. The University has a range of initiatives to support a family friendly working environment, including flexible working and childcare vouchers. See our University Initiatives website for further information.
