Closing date for applications: 5 January 2017

Expected start date: 1 July 2017


The Department of Engineering and Design wishes to appoint a Lecturer in Mechanical Engineering who has practical experience in experimental thermofluid mechanics with an emphasis on the measurement, simulation and design of rotating cavities in gas turbine engines. The post forms part of the consolidation of research activity in the world leading Thermofluid Mechanics Research Centre following the appointment of Professor Martin Rose. It also follows investment in staff and facilities by the School of Engineering and Informatics, supported in part by a recent £10m grant for a new centre encompassing computing, robotics, electronics and mechatronics.

The successful candidate will have research interests in one or more of the following areas: temperature and heat transfer measurements in turbo-machinery, fluid dynamics of rotor-stator systems, gas turbine internal air systems, modelling of flow and combustion. They will be expected to be able to teach at undergraduate and postgraduate level across core areas of mechanical engineering, including thermal power, mechanisms of machines and robots, and to supervise final year undergraduate and postgraduate Masters projects.

They will be expected to join the Thermofluid Mechanics Research Centre and contribute to its research activities, including projects funded by GE Aviation.

Applications should be accompanied by a full CV, and statements of future research plans and ways in which the applicant could contribute to teaching across the School.

Informal enquiries may be addressed either to Professor M Rose, Director of the TFMRC: M.Rose@sussex.ac.uk; or Professor D J Mynors, Head of School: D.J.Mynors@sussex.ac.uk.
