Postdoc fellowships and collaboration
I would be happy to hear from people interested in applying for postdoctoral fellowships (e.g. Marie Curie, Royal Society Newton) or research grants (e.g. Leverhulme, NERC etc). Please get in touch to discuss ideas.
Aberdeen is a fantastic place in which to live, and a perfect jumping off point into the spectacular Scottish Highlands! The Cairngorms National Park is right at our doorstep, as is some beautiful eastern coastline (beaches, coves and cliffs), from Angus to the south, past the stunning Moray coast, up to the Black Isle and Sutherland in the North. Also, Aberdeen is the major taking off point to explore Orkney and the Shetlands! Inverness can be reached within 2 hours, making much of the west coast and islands as accessable (e.g. Skye) if not much more accessible (e.g. Gairloach, Torridon, Assynt & the far north highlands) from Aberdeen than from Glasgow.
And we’re taking no nonsense about the climate here 🙂 – whilst the lowest temperature ever recorded for the UK was for Braemar (just over 50 miles away), that’s right into the Cairngorms (where you might enjoy some winter skiing perhaps). Aberdeen city year-round temperatures and rainfall are similar to those of Edinburgh! It’s a bit darker in the winter, sure, but balance that against gorgeous long evenings in the summertime! The sunsets and sunrises are to die for in Spring and Autumn particularly, with the Northern Lights regularly visible away from the glimmer of urban lights! You’ll like it here 🙂
