TRAIN@Ed is an ambitious new scheme to give postdoctoral researchers from around the world the opportunity to develop by providing bespoke opportunities to engage with industry and a dedicated skills development programme designed to help the Fellow is establishing a career in research.

TRAIN@Ed will allow Fellows to be employed for three years, with a focus on collaborative research with industry, the creative arts or third sector organisations. Training, mentoring and career development of the Fellows will be major features of their time. The “cohort” experience is based on the Edinburgh’s very successful Chancellor’s Fellows scheme.

Meet the fellows:

This is a Horizon 2020 Marie Skłodowska-Curie actions COFUND scheme. It acts as a new innovation tool at the university employing people as joint industry-academic fellows that can work to deepen collaborative partnerships. The aim of the “experienced researcher” programme is to facilitate recruitment of international postdoctoral Fellows with around 2 years post PhD experience.

The University of Edinburgh is focused on improving our many collaborations with businesses in light of the regional City Deal, as well as positioning us in the UK context. We believe that developing strong, trusting relationships between the University and external partners locally and globally is the foundation for many future successful collaborations. Research fellowships are based in one of six themes of importance to both Edinburgh and Scotland.
