Lecturer in Civil Engineering (Teaching and Research)

The University of Leeds and Southwest Jiaotong University have established the SWJTU – Leeds Joint School at the SWJTU campus in Chengdu, China. Having delivered 4 undergraduate taught programmes successfully (in Electronic and Electrical Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, Civil Engineering with Transport, and Computer Science), both universities now wish to grow the Joint School to deliver further Undergraduate, Masters and PhD programmes, and establish a thriving research and student exchange community.

We are looking to recruit an enthusiastic and motivated individual with interest in teaching and disciplinary expertise in civil engineering and transport who will be part of the SWJTU – Leeds Joint School and the School of Civil Engineering at the University of Leeds.

We are looking for the knowledge, experience and creativity needed to apply innovative modes of course delivery both online and offline. You will also be looking to build your research career internationally, exploring relationships and partnerships in Chengdu with a view to developing a collaborative research portfolio.

To achieve this, you will work full time in Chengdu over approximately 2 teaching semesters per year (up to 20 weeks). As well as delivering your course material, this extended stay in Chengdu will allow you to develop your research ideas and the strong relationships you will need to start international collaborations, feeding this through into your teaching practice and improving the student experience.

With this ability to collaborate effectively and to motivate and inspire learners, you will become a valued academic member of the SWJTU – Leeds Joint School, where you will create and lead innovation in education and research and help introduce new forms of learning.
