Dean of the School of Aeronautical, Automotive, Chemical and Materials Engineering (AACME)

Loughborough is an exceptional University. Our world-leading research, excellent education and student experience, unparalleled sporting achievements, and commitment to change, allow us to offer something truly distinctive from other UK Universities.

We continue to make significant steps towards being a proactively equitable, diverse and inclusive University. At Loughborough, the Deans of our Academic Schools are central to the success of the University, leading our staff, inspiring our students, and shaping the university.

Our School of Aeronautical, Automotive, Chemical and Materials Engineering (AACME) is home to a warm and vibrant academic community of 85 academics, 60 post-doctoral researchers and 100 PhD students, supported by 60 members of professional services and technical staff.

The constituent departments — Aeronautical and Automotive Engineering, Chemical Engineering and Materials — deliver high quality teaching and impactful research. All the departments are consistently ranked in the Top 10 in the Complete University Guide and score highly in the National Student Survey.

As Dean you will lead a School with impactful, world-leading high-quality research, and intensive industrial and international collaboration. In REF2021, AACME formed a large part of our UoA B12 return in which 96% of our Engineering Research was rated as World Leading or Internationally Excellent. AACME has particular strengths in the areas of combustion and aerothermal technology (including hydrogen and alternative fuels), the chemical circular economy, control and autonomous systems and materials characterisation.

We have strong collaborations with major industrial partners such as Rolls- Royce, Caterpillar and Ford.

You will be joining Loughborough at an exciting time, our new University Strategy (‘Creating Better Futures. Together.') is advancing our purpose, values and aims, offering a platform from which we will change the University and the world for the better.

I look forward to receiving your application and thank you for considering this opportunity.
