Academics & Postdoctoral Researchers

By bringing together academics from across Universities in Scotland, SICSA has created one of the largest top-quality research clusters in Computing Science in the world.

Academics and Postdoctoral Researchers in Scotland are automatically part of SICSA and therefore eligible to take advantage of SICSA funding programmes:

Host a Visitor (DVF’s)
Host an eminent researcher for 1 week – 3 months. Collaborate & share them with SICSA to inspire the next generation of researchers
Research Theme events (Cross Theme/Disciplines)
The SICSA Research Themes are driven by you, the academic community, and research events are a great way to build and maintain relationships across Scotland within your area of expertise.  This is also a great way to work across across other Research Themes, SFC Research Pools and/or Scottish Innovation Centres.
European Future Leaders Programme
SICSA is able to provide support for academics and researchers in Informatics and Computing Sciences at SICSA institutions to study new techniques outside the UK at recognised centres, such as Universities and Research Laboratories, and boost participation in European collaboration
Postdoctoral and Early Career Research Exchanges (PECE)
Build your career with a research exchange in Europe, North America, China or India. Develop international collaborations & enjoy a change of scenery.
