Academic Fellowship

The University of Edinburgh, a leading international centre of academic
excellence, and one of the largest and most successful research universities in
the UK, has been awarded 14 Research Council UK Academic Fellowships in
recognition of the nature and quality of its research priority areas. The
University will guarantee a permanent academic position following successful
completion of the Academic Fellowship.

We offer two positions in both clinical and basic research across neuroscience
and cognitive systems, with emphasis on collaborative, cross-College work.
Focus areas for appointment of the Academic Fellows will be: integrative
functional neuroimaging; neural regeneration and repair; cognitive
neuropsychology; neural networks and computer modelling of cognition.

It is anticipated that an Academic Fellow appointed in the School of
Informatics would be located in the Institute for Adaptive and Neural
Computation, http://anc.ed.ac.uk. Edinburgh has first class informatics,
neuroscience and psychology research. It has UK's largest informatics
department. It is also host to the EPSRC/MRC Doctoral Training Centre in

The duration of fellowship is not fixed but it is expected to be two years.
