School of Aerospace, Transport and Manufacturing

Professor of Advanced Aerospace Structures

Competitive salary commensurate with experience

Cranfield University is an exclusively postgraduate institution and a global leader for education and transformational research in technology and management. The School of Aerospace, Transport and Manufacturing (SATM) delivers advanced education, research and support to industry in the aerospace domain. Aerodynamics, structures, propulsion and air transport form the main pillars of this capability.

Following the establishment of a new Aerospace Integration Research Centre (AIRC), the School has significant investment available to create a new broad-based aerospace structures research and teaching activity aimed at achieving far-reaching impacts over the next two decades. The School is seeking to appoint outstanding individuals to build a capability in advanced structures that may include structural configuration engineering, materials synthesis and characterization, damage tolerance, fatigue and impact mechanics. There is an interest in recruiting individuals with experience in creep, fatigue, fracture mechanics and advanced structural testing.

The School is seeking a Chair in Advanced Aerospace Structures to lead a team to develop both research and teaching in the above areas and in context of the AIRC’s activities. The Chair holder is expected to have deep expertise and an internationally recognised track record, gained through leading edge academic research or industrial achievements in the design, engineering or manufacture of advanced structures. You will be expected to develop and lead ambitious plans to integrate and develop the School’s and the AIRC’s activities within the overall framework of devising airframe structures that are better integrated with aircraft propulsion and sub-systems.
