The Department of Mechanical Engineering is seeking to recruit Lecturers or
Senior Lecturers to undertake high quality research and teaching in the broad
areas of design and/or manufacturing. Two appointments will be made.
Candidates may have expertise in areas such as computational or optimised
product design, digital manufacturing, computer aided design/manufacturing,
new manufacturing processes and technologies, advances in existing processes
(CNC machining, additive manufacturing, forming technologies), the design
process, mechatronic design, or minimising environmental impact of products
and processes. Candidates with other research expertise which complements
existing strengths in the Department are welcome to apply, but will need to
demonstrate an ability to teach in engineering design or manufacturing.
Teaching is expected to support our well-established and highly successful
Mechanical MEng undergraduate degree programmes. All our degrees have an
exceptional reputation for their engineering design foundations and we are
looking for candidates who can support - and potentially lead - elements of
the design or manufacturing curriculum. We also welcome candidates with
specialist teaching contributions for our Mechanical with Manufacturing and
Management degree. In addition, you will be expected to fully participate in
supervising students undertaking significant individual and group projects
encompassing research or design activities.
The successful applicant will be able to demonstrate the ability to conduct
independent and/or collaborative research, publish high-quality research
papers including journal papers, and demonstrate the potential to obtain
significant external research funding. An ability to collaborate with
industrial partners is expected. You will hold a PhD and have an emerging or
established track record in research in a relevant subject.
