In 2021, Heriot-Watt University will celebrate its bicentenary as an institution known for the creation and exchange of knowledge for the benefit of society.
To celebrate this achievement we have set ourselves the target of recruiting one hundred outstanding research academics between 2018 and 2021.
These outstanding and highly qualified research leaders will strengthen and complement our existing world-class research; raising our capacity to undertake world-leading research and work in collaboration with international business and industry. They will help establish the future strategic direction of the University, enhancing our existing strengths and delivering world-leading research across our three international campus locations.
Successful applicants will have access to a truly global research community, world-class research facilities, and be part of a committed value led organisation that believes in inclusivity and opportunities for all.
