Lecturer/Senior Lecturer in Electrical Engineering/Robotics

University of Lincoln - College of Science - School of Engineering

Lecturer Salary £32,004
Senior Lecturer Salary £37,075

The University of Lincoln is seeking suitably qualified applicants for a new academic position in the School of Engineering. The focus of the position is in Electrical and Electronics Engineering, with particular emphasis on research applications in the area Robotics and Automation.

The Lincoln School of Engineering was founded in 2009 with HEFCE Development Funding, and in collaboration with Siemens Industrial Turbomachinery and other employers in the engineering sector. It is the first major Engineering School to be established in the UK for decades and is now undergoing a period of vigorous growth. The School has established itself as a centre of excellence for Engineering Education and Research. It was highlighted as a best practice case study in the Government-commissioned Wilson Review (exploring Business-University Collaboration). In 2011 the School was the recipient of a Lord Stafford Award for ground-breaking collaboration between industry and academia and in 2012 was the winner of the Times Higher award for Outstanding Employer Engagement. Based on our research collaborations, we were awarded Siemens Global Principal Partner status in 2015, one of only 16 such universities worldwide and one of only four in the UK.

The new opportunity arises as part of our continuing expansion of research and taught programmes. At undergraduate level we offer an innovative combination of degrees in Mechanical, Electrical and Automation Engineering. Research focus is largely cross-disciplinary, and covers: control and automation systems; power and energy; materials and industrial processing. Of particular relevance is our participation in research into robotics for agriculture and food manufacturing, much of this in collaboration with the Lincoln Institute for Agri-Food Technology.

Research pedigree and teaching experience in Electrical Engineering is essential. Candidates are expected to have a PhD in Engineering, Mathematics or the Physical Sciences, and have research or industrial experience relevant to Electrical and Electronic Systems / Robotics.

Informal enquiries about the post can be made to Professor Tim Gordon, Head of School of Engineering, +44(0)1522 837 911; email: tgordon@lincoln.ac.uk.
