Assistant/Associate Professors in Electromagnetics, Microwave and/or Antenna Engineering

Heriot-Watt University - Institute for Sensors Signals and Systems (ISSS)

Location: Based at Riccarton Campus, near Edinburgh but with operation internationally.

Salary: Associate Professor – Grade 9: £49,149 – £56,950 / Assistant Professor – Grade 7: £31,604 - £38,833 or 8: £39,991 - £47,722 (salary dependent on experience and qualifications).

As a leading international technological University, Heriot-Watt University is recognised for its world-class research, knowledge exchange, and educational programmes, becoming Scottish University of the year in both 2011 and 2012. The School of Engineering and Physical Sciences is one of the most successful engineering faculties in the UK, rated number one in the UK (with University of Edinburgh) for research power in the 2014 Research Excellence Framework assessment of UK research quality. With over £25 million annual research income it is a recognised research leader in Physics, Electrical and Electronics Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, and Chemistry. Computer Science in the School of Mathematical and Computer Sciences was ranked equal 1st in the UK for its world-leading research environment as well as the impact of its research.

The Institute for Sensors Signals and Systems (ISSS) is a world leading research institute in developing key innovations related to satellite and terrestrial communication systems, microwave and antenna engineering, digital communications, manufacturing integration and packaging, sensor design, signal and image processing, autonomous distributive systems, and robotics. Our research has impact in several key areas, including Wireless and Wired Communication Networks, Satellite Communications, Medicine and the Life Sciences, Robotics, Autonomous Systems and Transport, Manufacturing and Quality Control, Electronics and Microelectronics, Environmental Monitoring and Remote Sensing, Security, Surveillance and Defence.

With a clear strategy for your future research plans, you will develop an independent research portfolio, while demonstrating leadership and initiative in developing novel research teams. You will also contribute to teaching within the disciplines of Electrical, Electronic, and Computer Engineering.

To be considered, you will have knowledge and experience in the area of electromagnetics and/or microwaves/antenna engineering. You will have a strong academic track record and a strong drive to become a research leader. Ideally, you will possess a successful track record of obtaining external funding, as well as previous teaching and learning experience to contribute positively to our undergraduate and postgraduate teaching. Relevant industrial experience would be desirable. A PhD in Electrical Engineering, Physics, or other cognate discipline is essential, along with evidence of vision, drive, and determination to succeed. A confident and outgoing attitude is necessary, as well as the ability to work both independently and as part of a team.
