Oxford Brookes University - Faculty of Technology, Design and Environment

The Faculty of Technology, Design and Environment at Oxford Brookes University has an international reputation for excellence, innovation and an ambitious desire to be recognised as one of the most exciting places to study in the world. We are now investing in key areas of research excellence, focusing on Engines and Sustainable Transport Systems. Which is why we are inviting exceptional candidates to apply for our inaugural Vice Chancellor's Research Fellowship. It is a fantastic opportunity to take the first steps on an independent career, and be part of high-profile research that offers great potential for publication.

Mechanical Engineering has a strong track record of work in this area, through projects such as the TSB funded BMW Electric Mini trials, and the EPSRC TARF project (Towards Affordable Recyclable Future Vehicle Structures). Engines research is led by a dedicated group, which works in collaboration with Ford Motor Company, focussing on the optimisation and soot capabilities for GDI.

As a Research Fellow, it will be your role to establish and build an independent research programme with an international reputation. As part of this, you will ensure projects achieve their objectives, form and develop collaborations with existing and external researchers will see you generate multi and interdisciplinary research outputs writing research outputs for international journals and other quality publications.

We are looking for academics in Engines and Sustainable Transport Systems.

This is an exciting opportunity for anyone with a PhD, and a substantial period of postdoctoral (or equivalent) research experience. It is also a fantastic chance to build and develop your already strong publications track record. In fact, you will come to us with a history of writing articles in high-quality peer reviewed journals, and the ability to enhance the research culture of both the department and faculty. Responsible for managing major projects and teams, you will also have mentored or supervised junior research staff or students.
