Dear types-announce,

The University of Edinburgh is advertising up to 30 Chancellor's Fellowship
posts across all areas, with 10 in the College of Science and Engineering,
which the advertisement describes as "5-year tenure track fellowships,
designed to provide talented early career researchers with the support
required to develop into a leading research-active academic at the
University of Edinburgh."  Candidates are expected to have two or more
years postdoctoral experience.

The School of Informatics welcomes applications in  "all areas of computer
science, artificial intelligence and data science" and specifically
encourages applications in "quantum computing systems, formal verification,
computer architecture, and computer science and artificial intelligence for
sustainability" [1].  Cross-disciplinary research that might span one or
more Schools in the University is also welcome, particularly aligned with
the priority areas "AI and Data Science; Health and Life; Climate and
Environmental Sustainability".  Several of these topics (perhaps all)
overlap with topics discussed in this mailing list/community, and I wanted
to highlight that because the

The posts are not pre-allocated to specific schools within the College
(such as Informatics) and shortlisting and hiring decisions will be made
based on the strength of applications to different Schools.  Historically,
the School of Informatics has attracted a disproportionate number of
high-quality applicants and been able to make multiple appointments through
this type of mechanism.

Appointments at lecturer or senior lecturer/reader grade are possible based
on experience. Candidates who already hold (or have been awarded)
prestigious externally-funded fellowships such as Royal Society, EPSRC,
UKRI or ERC are also welcome to apply, and applications from candidates
with backgrounds not currently well-represented in science and engineering
are specifically strongly encouraged.

I am not an official contact person for these positions but since the
University webpage [1] and application page [2] are somewhat vague about
what area(s) are in scope and opaque about to whom applicants can direct
questions, I am happy to forward any questions I receive to someone
appropriate if I don't know the answer myself.
