The University of Leeds is offering new opportunities for academic researchers

University Academic Fellowship - 250 Great Minds. Applications open Wednesday 29th July 2015.

With a unique fellowship scheme, successful applicants will embark on a five year structured development programme, leading to an established position as an Associate Professor.

Sir Alan Langlands, University of Leeds Vice-Chancellor, said: “Leeds is making an unparalleled investment in new academic staff who will be given the opportunity to build strong, independent research portfolios and deliver innovative research-led teaching. This will have a positive impact on the profile of research and student education at Leeds.”
The campaign has been driven by the University’s ambition to develop and explore new research and educational opportunities on an interdisciplinary basis. We want to recruit 250 University Academic Fellows by 2017 that have the potential to make a major contribution to the University's academic performance and standing.
