UCL is one of the world’s most prestigious, research-led universities, ranked 4th in the world and 2nd in Europe (2012/13 QS World University Rankings). UCL’s Excellence Fellowship Programme seeks to recruit and develop the best early career scientists, supporting them in an environment that fosters academic excellence and creativity to become the leaders of the future.
The current round seeks candidates working in research areas relevant to UCL and the new Francis Crick Institute (http://www.crick.ac.uk), of which UCL is a founding partner. Due to open nearby to UCL in 2015, the Crick promises to be one of the most significant developments in UK biomedical science for a generation.
Fellowships are available within UCL School of Life and Medical Sciences (SLMS) and UCL Faculty of Maths and Physical Sciences (MAPS). Please note that this advertisement is for those based in MAPS. Please search for ‘UCL Excellence Fellowships – SLMS’ to apply for a fellowship based in SLMS.
The posts are funded for 3 years in the first instance.
Applications are welcome from researchers in any area of science involving a physical-biomedical multidisciplinary approach, with a high priority on Computational, Mathematical, Chemical and Biomaterials sciences, although applicants from other fields will also be welcome. Successful candidates will be expected to have (i) a PhD, (ii) a strong publication record in internationally leading journals, (iii) a novel and challenging research agenda which will advance the strategic objective of UCL and its engagement with the Crick Institute, (iv) demonstrable creativity, and v) clear leadership potential.
All UCL Excellence Fellows will be expected to undertake research that aligns with the strategy of both UCL and the Francis Crick Institute, and to promote and participate in collaborative links with the Crick Institute’s other partners – the MRC National Institute for Medical Research, CR-UK London Research Institute, Imperial College London and King’s College London.
