De Montfort University (DMU) is the most improved university in the UK, according to the 2015 Times and Sunday Times league table. DMU is renowned for creativity and innovation with our own distinctive way of doing things. We are seeking outstanding candidates to join our successful team of academics and researchers. Our life-changing research is central to the vision of our expanding academic community. Almost 60% of our research activities were considered world-leading or internationally excellent in the 2014 Research Excellence Framework, achieving a rise in research quality of 15% compared to the last exercise in 2008.
The School of Engineering and Sustainable Development has seen fantastic growth over the last few years and is home to a suite of vibrant engineering programmes and world-leading research across engineering, energy and sustainable development. The appointee is expected to be flexible and help support teaching and learning across the core subjects in Engineering and Sustainable Development but with a particular focus on advanced thermodynamics, combustion and computational fluid dynamics. The new post holder would also be expected to bring world class research into programmes of study, at both undergraduate and postgraduate level. In addition, the School is seeking candidates who are eager to engage in wider university programmes such as #DMUglobal and Square Mile.
Excellent teaching is at the heart of our commitment to professional, creative and vocational education. Our passionate and enthusiastic lecturers have earned 18 National Teaching Fellowships, making DMU one of the top three universities in the UK on this measure of teaching excellence.
With work under way on the £136m transformation of our Leicester city centre campus, we are seeking outstanding academics to work in this dynamic, ambitious environment.
It is our goal to become the leading provider of professional and creative education with research that pushes boundaries and improves lives. We wish to attract more talented, professional and creative academics to our campus. Our VC2020 roles are predominately aimed at early career academics, and therefore, appointment is expected at grade F (Lecturer grade). (In exceptional cases, we may consider a case for appointing at Senior Lecturer level, subject to the skills and experience of the preferred candidate).
