We're looking for a mind that amazes

At Queen’s, we’re very proud of our reputation for research – and we’re even more ambitious for its future. Illuminate: The Vice-Chancellor's Fellowships are being offered to researchers across all Faculties. Join us and you will get access to the support and facilities you need to achieve your career ambitions.

Thank you for considering applying to Illuminate: The Vice-Chancellor's Fellowship Scheme at Queen’s University Belfast.

Queen’s is an exciting place. A place that delivers both local and international impact. Queen’s University is a member of the prestigious Russell Group of UK research intensive universities, combining excellence in research and education with a student-centred ethos.

Queen’s is based in Belfast, a modern capital city known for its welcome and accessibility and as being a great place to live and work. The city is outward-focussed and has recently secured a City Deal which will create up to 20,000 jobs and deliver a 10-year programme of inclusive economic growth across the region. We are immensely proud of what our city and our university can offer.

As a Fellow at Queen’s, you will be part of a world-class international university built on teaching excellence, leading-edge research, innovation, collaboration and engagement, and will play a key role in shaping our future priorities.

With a career pathway to a permanent Senior Lecturer/Reader post, you will benefit from membership of the Fellowship Academy to support your development and progression.

We look forward to welcoming candidates and seeing you become the next generation of world-class researchers at Queen’s.

Professor Ian Greer, President and Vice-Chancellor
