5 Reasons to Join Lero

  • Lero has an excellent track record in academic mentoring and career development. For example, three of Lero’s research faculty have served as Vice-President for Research in their universities.  
  • Superb career development experience: Former Lero Postdoctoral Fellows and PhD students have achieved rapid promotion in their subsequent academic careers. One is now a Dean and 12 others have been awarded Full Professor or Associate Professor/Reader positions at leading universities, including Imperial College, Warwick Business School, Uppsala University.
  • Excellent industry careers also – Lero graduates have attained significant managerial positions, including three CTO appointments, in major international companies (including Deutsche Bank, Husqvarna, IBM Research, Microsoft Research, NEC Research, SAS, United Technologies)
