You will be expected to provide excellent vision and delivery in research and teaching, as well as contributing to leadership and management, and being involved in enhancing online teaching initiatives. A key focus of this Fellowship is to extend and further develop our industrial collaboration and impact.

You will have begun to establish a reputation for the quality of your research, and will have a commitment to teaching and student support at University level in the discipline of Civil Engineering. Your research focus will be linked to one or more of: data science for future infrastructure; application of engineering principles to smart buildings/integrated digital environments; or risk and/or resilience engineering for infrastructure. Your research should have numerous potential applications with existing or new industry partners.

The culture of the School of Engineering and the University is open and diverse and we are committed to reflecting that in our appointment process.
