We are building the university of the future. We are doing this through empowering and creating opportunity for all our students and staff so as they may learn, discover and enrich society locally, nationally and internationally. Our success is demonstrated by many accolades, including a TEF Gold Award, The Guardian University of the Year for 2019, The Times and The Sunday Times Modern University of the Year in 2018 and the THE University of the Year for 2017, not to mention a top-20 position in The Guardian League Table for the past two years.

The School of Science and Technology at NTU is a dynamic, diverse school with an outstanding reputation in teaching and a fast growing reputation in research and innovation. The School has long been a critical part of NTU’s research and innovation powerbase. It is composed of six departments that span the biological, computer, forensic, mathematical, physical and sports sciences, and engineering. The School is home to around 4,500 students, including about 500 MSc and 150 PhD students, and around 350 staff in substantive posts.

The School has long been a critical part of NTU’s research and innovation powerbase. The excellence of its research is reflected in the Queen’s Anniversary Prize awarded to NTU in 2015, largely based on pioneering X-ray imaging work carried out in the School. It is also the home of the multimillion pound endowed John van Geest Cancer Research Centre, the newly established £23M Medical Technologies Innovation Facility, and the soon-to-be-established Institute for Digital Innovation, an initiative designed to exploit the opportunities of Industry 4.0. The Institute will be based in the new £24M Engineering Building, which will open in September 2019 on the Clifton campus.

We are looking for a leader with vision in the field of Robotics, located in either the Department of Engineering or the Department of Computing & Technology. The Department of Engineering, which was launched in 2017 with a vision to create Engineers for the Future, is growing its undergraduate programmes in Electronic, Sport, Biomedical and Mechanical Engineering, and will further expand its offering at both the undergraduate and masters level in the near future.  The Department of Computing and Technology is a hugely popular department with students and a reputation for delivering industrially relevant courses, including a range of Degree Apprenticeships.

As Professor/Associate Professor of Robotics, you will lead the growth of research in some relevant aspect of the field; applications are welcome from across the spectrum of robotics specialisms, including in Industry 4.0 and healthcare. You will undertake a substantive programme of research at the highest international standard. These would include collaborative, drone and aerial, autonomous vehicles, farming robotics, cognitive robotics and intelligent systems.

So talk to us, tell us of a bold future you’d like to build and we will give you the support to make it happen.
