Innovation Fellowships

Edinburgh Innovations are recruiting Innovation Fellows, who will have a track record of innovative research or translation & will develop a research and translation programme, incorporating vital pathways to produce impact of reach and significance.

The successful Fellow will be expected to develop an academic career based on signature innovation and/or other impact activities across our full range of disciplines, especially those working across different disciplines, who have relevant experience of, or demonstrable potential to, lead interdisciplinary initiatives.
