Each year, Scottish Crucible brings together 30 highly promising researchers from across Scotland. Participants are competitively selected from a well-qualified field of applicants all of whom are employed as Early Career Researchers i.e. either Senior Postdoctoral Fellows, Academic Research Fellows or Lecturers in Scottish universities, or their equivalents in independent research institutes, SMEs and spin-out companies.

But it doesn’t all end after Crucible. These participants become our alumni, or ‘Cruciblists’ and are invited to a range of events, from Crucible socials to the annual Crucible Forum.

We also feature our Cruciblists in Spotlights‘, with details of their research interests and contact information for prospective projects.
