Are you an experienced and ambitious researcher looking for your next challenge? Do you have a strong research background in Fluid Dynamics? Do you want to further your career in a world-leading, research-intensive Russell Group University? 

With a vision and drive to contribute to a World-Leading research portfolio, as well as a passion for undertaking research-led teaching, you will make a significant impact on the performance, stature and profile of research and student education at The University of Leeds.

Leeds Institute for Fluid Dynamics (LIFD) at the University of Leeds is a new initiative across the Faculties of Engineering, Maths and Physical Sciences, Environment and Medicine and Health which brings together world-leading expertise in Fluid Dynamics. LIFD has substantial strengths in fluid dynamics applied to energy and transport, environmental challenges, geophysical and astrophysical flows, biomedical, and industrial processes as well as development of underpinning methodologies. Research ranges from fundamental physics of flows through to practical application driven by user needs, and is supported by strong expertise in analytical, computational and experimental approaches at all scales. Researcher training is a particular focus as LIFD hosts the EPSRC Centre for Doctoral Training in Fluid Dynamics. 

We are seeking candidates whose research reflects the interdisciplinary and collaborative ethos of the Institute. You will combine expertise in an application area from engineering, biomedical or environmental fluid dynamics with a strong mathematical underpinning. Within the School of Mathematics, fluid dynamics research currently includes geophysical (including atmospheric and oceanic) and astrophysical flows, non-Newtonian fluid dynamics, biological fluid mechanics, and transition to turbulence. Potential application areas include, but are not limited to, topics in civil and mechanical engineering (such as indoor & urban airflow, flooding & water infrastructure, thermo-fluids & combustion, micro- & nano-fluidics, and tribology), Earth and environmental science (including geophysics & techtonics, and climate & atmospheric science) or biomedical science (including vascular and cardio-vascular flows).

You should be able to demonstrate an excellent track record of research, and show how you will use this to develop collaborations between the School of Mathematics and other partner Schools within the Institute, as well as across other discipline areas at Leeds.

Career Pathway: Tenure track equivalent post requiring successful completion of a 5 year development plan, leading to appointment to a grade 9 Associate Professor, with the potential for accelerated progression.
