The Role
To contribute to the provision of high quality teaching, research, enterprise and/or professional activity in the area of Automotive Engineering including electric and hybrid vehicles, initially as a member of a teaching team and in collaboration with others, to the benefit of a diverse range of students and colleagues. To contribute to the University’s objective of securing an outstanding reputation for research-informed learning, innovation and integrated academic practice.

The Person
You’ll come to us with a first degree in mechanical engineering or equivalent at 2.1 or above together with a PhD in a relevant field or equivalent professional qualification.

The Faculty
The Faculty of Science, Engineering and Computing was designed to enable interdisciplinary study, research and projects – and provide hands-on, ‘real-world’ experiences for its students. More than 400 academics, support staff, researchers and research students work together alongside undergraduate and postgraduate students as one academic community.

Thanks to the Faculty’s success in the national Research Excellence Framework (REF), it will gain greater recognition for its cutting-edge research and continue to help change the world for the better.

The Faculty runs a comprehensive programme of outreach activities to take science, engineering and computing out into the community.

Using the brand new ‘labs in lorries’, it takes advanced equipment into schools and colleges across the Southeast, including programmable robots, forensic science equipment and an advanced patient simulator that looks and talks like a person. These facilities are available in a specialist outreach centre that opened in September 2016 and aim to engage and inspire the next generation of science, technology, engineering and maths (STEM) professionals.
