De Montfort University - School of Engineering & Sustainable Development

This is an exciting time to join De Montfort University, and the Faculty of Technology. DMU is proud to be recognised as a university ranked Gold under the recent Teaching Excellence Framework (TEF). The award is recognition of the consistently outstanding teaching and learning on offer at DMU and the extraordinary impact that has on our students. We are now seeking outstanding candidates to join our successful team of academics and researchers. The School of Engineering and Sustainable Development is located within the University’s Faculty of Technology led by Dean and Pro-Vice Chancellor Professor David Mba. It is host to nearly 900 students who are spread across a range of engineering and sustainable development disciplines at both undergraduate and postgraduate levels. Teaching is characterised by a sound focus upon industrial experience, as well as the development of a supportive yet challenging environment for students at all levels. There is a lively research culture that is structured around a suite of research centres with strong leadership and clear objectives.

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.

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.
