The School of Science and Technology (SST) is looking for an exceptional researcher to join us as a Presidential Fellow, focusing on fostering and advancing research excellence in the area of Quantum Information, Computing, and Algorithms.

Our innovative strategy places a strong emphasis on cutting-edge research that pushes the boundaries of current practice. We are dedicated to nurturing research that is not only significant but also has a profound impact and is deeply engaged with real-world challenges. With a unique vision for effecting positive change, you will play a pivotal role in shaping the future of research within our School and your specific field of expertise.

As a Presidential Fellow, you will be granted three years of dedicated research time, providing you with the opportunity to pursue a high-calibre and ground-breaking research agenda while simultaneously establishing an independent research career. After completing the three-year tenure period, you will have the opportunity to secure a permanent position within the School either as a lecturer or as a research-only fellow.


You will lead or become part of an SST team, working on a specific, multidisciplinary research topic. You will collaborate with the School's academics to publish research findings in conferences and journals, prepare new proposals for external funding, and support the supervision of doctoral students. Academic mentoring arrangements will be agreed to support development plans and help to reach your potential. You may be asked to undertake a limited amount of teaching to support your integration and to help prepare for a permanent academic position at the end of the Fellowship.
