ESA-announce job opening University of Edinburgh
The University of Edinburgh is currently recruiting young promising researchers in all areas of social sciences. We offer 5-year research fellowships with a possibility of permanent appointment afterwards.
The school of Economics is particularly interested in attracting experimentalists (field/lab). We have recently built a new laboratory and welcome applications in that area. The ideal candidate would be a couple of years after his Ph.D. and have some publications (these are not necessary conditions though)
See below for the details and information on how to apply.

The University of Edinburgh, a global top 20 University located in one of the world`s finest cities, is making a further major investment in the future of its academic staff with the appointment of a second cohort 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 careers. 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, progressively 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 Grade 8 Academic grade (£37,382 to £44,607). In exceptional circumstances a more senior appointment may be made. Positions are available with immediate effect and it is expected that successful applicants will be in post by September 2013.
Applications containing a detailed CV and a 1-page outline of a proposed research programme should be made online at http://www.ed.ac.uk/jobs by searching for Chancellors Fellowships.
General advice may be obtained by emailing chancellorsfellows and specific details may be obtained from the Head of School, details of which are available on our website.
Closing Date: 18 April 2013 (5pm GMT)
