Lord Kelvin Adam Smith Research Fellowships (MVLS)

To support the growth of its global reputation for world-changing research, the University of Glasgow is investing in the recruitment of outstanding early career researchers to its Lord Kelvin Adam Smith (LKAS) Research Fellowships.

Our flagship LKAS Fellowship Scheme was established in 2006 to enable the recruitment of outstanding researchers who are in the early stages of their careers and are on a trajectory to become leaders in their chosen field. The scheme offers Fellows the opportunity to establish or further develop an independent research career.

The College of Medical, Veterinary & Life Sciences are investing in up to seven Research Fellowships aligned thematically within the areas of research excellence prioritised in our Research Institutes:
• Institute of Biodiversity, Animal Health and Comparative Medicine
• Institute of Cancer Sciences
• Institute of Cardiovascular & Medical Sciences
• Institute of Health & Wellbeing
• Institute of Infection, Immunity & Inflammation
• Institute of Molecular, Cell and Systems Biology
• Institute of Neuroscience & Psychology

Applications are also welcome from those who are interested in pursuing cross-disciplinary research, for example in:

1) Precision medicine with a focus on chronic diseases and multimorbidity and including the application of machine learning and AI
2) Structural biology to investigate mechanisms of disease
3) Application of machine learning and AI across the broader areas of life sciences

Applicants are asked to clearly specify in their application which Institute they are most closely aligned with, and the selection criteria will be interpreted accordingly in order to judge disciplinary relevance.

In addition to completing the online application form, you will also be required to complete a separate application document, to be appended to your cover letter.
