250 Great Minds – the University of Leeds

The University of Leeds is seeking to recruit up to 250 exceptional early career academics to tenure track equivalent Academic Fellowships over the next three years. Whether you are looking to establish your academic career as a new fellow or already hold an existing funded fellowship and wish to bring it to the University of Leeds they want to hear from you.

They say:

The proposition is simple. We want to recruit 250 exceptional University Academic Fellows over the next three years who have the potential to make a major contribution to the University’s academic performance and standing. After successful completion of a structured five year development and induction programme you will be confirmed as an Associate Professor.

Our academic staff and their capabilities are our most important asset and this investment will build a platform for our future. We want to recruit people who will be internationally competitive as future academic leaders contributing to the University’s ambition to excel at REF 2020 and beyond.  The appointments align to our core disciplinary strengths and strategies but are typically based in strong cross disciplinary activity or emerging academic platforms and support the major external opportunities and themes for growth identified by the University.”
