Lord Kelvin Adam Smith Research Fellowships in Data Science

April 10, 2019, from Lyndsay Fletcher

The University of Glasgow has advertised three fellowships in Data Science under its prestigious Lord Kelvin Adam Smith scheme. These fellowships are awarded for up to five years, with the last two years dependent on performance, and can be held in any School in the College of Science and Engineering. The closing date is April 26th 2019.

The Astronomy and Astrophysics Group in the School of Physics and Astronomy encourages applications to this scheme from solar physicists with data science experience, or data scientists interested in solar problems. The group works on a range of solar physics problems using ground and space-based data from radio to X-ray wavelengths, and is involved in missions and facilities with clear data challenges, such as the LOFAR radio telescope and the forthcoming Daniel K Inouye Solar Telescope .

A short proposal is required, which should be aligned with current activities in the group. Therefore please contact Prof. Lyndsay Fletcher (lyndsay.fletcher@glasgow.ac.uk) in the first instance to discuss a potential application.

The salary will be on the University’s Research and Teaching grades 7 or 8 (Grade 7: £35,210 – £39,610 per annum, Grade 8: – £43,266 – £50,132 per annum). In addition to the salary funding, an allowance for research costs will be made at a rate of £10,000 per annum for each year of the fellowship for laboratory-based research and £5,000 per annum for each year for non-laboratory-based research.
