The College of Medicine and Veterinary Medicine, part of the University of Edinburgh, a global top 20 University located in one of the world`s finest cities, is keen to attract early career researchers for appointment as Chancellor’s Fellows. Successful candidates will be based in the BHF Centre of Research Excellence at Edinburgh (REA3). More information can be found here:

Applications are welcomed from individuals with expertise in the following areas:
• Fibrosis and Calcification in Cardiovascular Disease
• Cardiovascular Healthcare Data Science

Projects in fibrosis and calcification in the cardiovascular system are particularly sought. For example, pre-clinical research relating to cardiac fibrosis, aortic stenosis and vascular calcification thereby creating strong links to excellent clinical research in these areas within the University.

Fellows will undertake a research project relevant to REA3 research. Project proposals should be clearly aligned with REA3 themes and projects working across themes are encouraged. These 5-year Fellowships are intended to support candidates at the start of their independent academic careers. Subject to satisfactory review at the end of year 4, Fellows will then move to a standard University academic open-ended contract. It is anticipated that most appointees will be successful in obtaining an open-ended contract.

Successful candidates will have access to a comprehensive and integrated data repository for all local, regional and national health and social care data for residents of the Edinburgh & South East Scotland region. The repository, the DataLoch, and the associated data driven innovation team will enable innovative approaches to improve patient care and reduce health inequalities across the region. Scotland has a single healthcare provider and an integrated health system consisting of world-leading linked national healthcare data assets from birth to death.

Appointment will be on the Grade 8 (£41,526 – £49,553) or Grade 9 (£52,559 – £59,135) academic scale dependent on experience.

We welcome applications from everyone irrespective of gender or ethnic group. As women and members of ethnic minorities are currently under-represented in posts at this level we particularly encourage applications from members of these groups. As a global University, we are interested in attracting candidates working in all parts of the world and can offer relocation support.

Applicants must include a 500 word summary proposal of the science.

Interviews are scheduled to take place on 16th January 2020.
