The University of Edinburgh is investing in one hundred prestigious
Chancellor's Fellowships.  We expect a number of these to be awarded
in Informatics.  Specific areas of interest include:

 - Software Engineering: model–driven development, testing,
verification and security
 - Computational Cognitive Science
 - Systems: particularly operating systems and multicore
 - Networks
 - Data Intensive Research
 - Modelling & Simulation

Readers of this list will know that the Laboratory for Foundations of
Computer Science, founded by Robin Milner, Gordon Plotkin, Rod
Burstall, and Matthew Hennessy in 1986, has a strong tradition of
research in subjects related to Types.  We welcome applications by
excellent candidates in this area.  Please contact me if you are
interested in applying.


The University of Edinburgh, a global top 20 University located in one
of the world`s fine cities, is making a major investment in the future
of its academic staff with the appointment of prestigious tenure-track
Fellowships across all disciplines. These 5-year Fellowships are
intended to support outstanding candidates at the start of their
independent academic career. Up to 100 positions are available.

A Chancellor`s Fellow will already show the ability to conduct
world-leading research and exhibit clear potential to become an
international leader in their discipline. The Fellow will be able to
concentrate on research in the first instance, acquiring the full
duties of University Lecturer across the period of the Fellowship.
Subject to satisfactory review at the end of 3 years, the Fellow will
move to an open contract on the University academic staff.

Appointment will normally be made on the Lecturer scale (£36,862 -
£44,016), dependent on experience, and in exceptional circumstances a
more senior appointment may be made. Some positions are available with
immediate effect and it is expected that successful applicants will be
in post from August 2012.

Applications containing a detailed CV and a 1-page outline of a
proposed research programme should be made online at www.jobs.ed.ac.uk
to meet one of the closing dates below. General advice may be obtained
by emailing chancellorsfellows at ed.ac.uk and specific details may be
obtained from the appropriate Head of School.

This is a rolling recruitment process so please submit your
application by one of the following closing dates:

  16th January 2012
  29th February 2012
  16th April 2012
