Assistant Professor in Engineering Design for Manufacture

University of Nottingham - Mechanical Materials & Manufacturing Engineering

Location: University Park

Salary: £34,576 to £46,414 per annum, depending on skills and experience. Salary progression beyond this scale is subject to performance.

Applications are invited for the above post based in the Department of Mechanical, Materials and Manufacturing Engineering in the Faculty of Engineering at University Park, Nottingham. This appointment will complement and strengthen research related to the expansion of activities within The Rolls-Royce University Technology Centre (UTC) in Manufacturing and On-Wing Technology as well as teaching in manufacturing at the University of Nottingham.

This expansion is in the area of innovative engineering design and simulation of mechanical systems for manufacturing processes and on-platform technologies (in-situ repair/processing of large structures without need of disassembly). This research strand is a combination of engineering design for manufacture, analytical/numerical simulations for efficient realisation of specialist manufacturing tools (e.g. jig/fixtures, specialist devices, machines) for conventional workshop based or on-platform processing of aerospace components/assemblies.

The research of the Faculty was highly ranked in the Research Excellence Framework, (REF) 2014. Candidates should have a record of high quality research and publications and teaching experience relevant to the role.

The successful candidate will contribute to the delivery of teaching for the Department’s undergraduate and postgraduate taught courses.
