Fellowship opportunities in Statistics in the School of Mathematics at the University of Edinburgh

The University of Edinburgh is building on the outstanding successes of our Chancellor’s Fellowship programmes and its world class research performance, by investing in a pre-tenure track fellowship scheme, designed for the career researcher that brings together academic challenge with the variety of opportunities found in industry. As part of the three-year individual fellowships, the scheme will train as a cohort to have the skills toolkit required for a sustainable research career in either academia or industry. The cohort-training concept will be at the heart of the skills development activities and is designed to support fellows to develop into effective and professional researchers, who have the skills to be successful in their longer-term career goals. Based in the heart of one of the world’s finest cities, these prestigious 3-year awards support early career researchers and academic innovators of the highest promise from outside the UK to develop their careers in a supportive, high quality environment. The Marie Skłodowska-Cure Actions is a European Commission initiative to support researchers at all stages of their careers enhance employability and career development.
