MRC Skills Development Fellow, Grade 7 Full Time, ref: 024326

Reference Number: 024326
Grade: 7    
Position Type: Full time
Salary Range: £35,210 - £39,610 per annum
Closing date: 18 March 2019

This prestigious, three year, Skills Development Fellowship is funded by the MRC following the University of Glasgow’s successful application to host Skills Development Fellows in the area of quantitative social science. The post-holder will enter the MRC Skills Development Fellowship Programme. The fellowship includes funding for training to support the post-holder to develop into a future academic leader. The postholder will be a member of the Institute of Health and Wellbeing, University of Glasgow and will be expected to further develop existing quantitative / computational social science skills while applying them to health research within the MRC remit. A bespoke training and development programme will be agreed with the Line Manager and reviewed annually. Applicants from a non-health research background with transferable quantitative/computational social science skills are particularly welcome, although those already working in health research are eligible to apply.

The actual project will be developed by the postholder in discussion with the Line Manager to take account of existing skills, expertise and interests. Applicants should provide a brief outline of their proposed area of research in their letter of application and are encouraged to discuss this prior to applying. Shortlisted applicants should contact potential supervisors in advance of the interview in order to provide a more detailed (2-page) project description to be discussed as part of the interview process. 

This post has funding for three years. Further information and application details are available here.
