Guided by the desire to help France win the Napoleonic Wars, Sadi Carnot gave birth to Thermodynamics. Although primarily focused on the efficiency of heat engines, such theory had developed into one of the principal pillars of modern physics. Even with the advent of relativity and quantum mechanics, the macroscopic laws of thermodynamics remained unchanged.

A number of Chancellor’s Fellowships are available at the University of Strathclyde, in Glasgow, UK. These are 5-year positions, at the level of Lecturer or Senior Lecturer, which come with the perspective of an open-ended academic appointment (“tenure”). The positions are directed to “bold, ambitious and innovative future research leaders”.
