Our department

The mission of the Department of Mechanical & Aerospace Engineering is to advance knowledge and commerce in mechanical and aerospace engineering, and apply fresh thinking to the challenges faced by industry and society.  Our research is carried out in award-winning and internationally recognised research centres in energy, aerospace, fluids and materials.

If your research focuses on any of the below areas, then we would love to hear from you:


  • Failure and Fracture
  • Fatigue and creep
  • Microstructure and Property Relationships
  • Material Processing (incl forging)
  • Advanced Joining
  • Thermo-mechanical treatments
  • High Temperature Materials
  • Erosion-Corrosion
  • Smart Materials
  • Intelligent Nanomaterials


  • Fatigue
  • Fracture Mechanics
  • Continuum Damage Mechanics
  • Cyclic Plasticity, Shakedown & Ratcheting
  • High Temperature Mechanics: Creep, Creep-Fatigue, Creep-Ratchet
  • Advanced Finite Element Methods
  • Structural Integrity & Fitness for Service
  • Multifunctional Structures
  • Lightweight Structures


  • Aeroelasticity
  • Morphing structures
  • Artificial Intelligence and Autonomy
  • Intelligent Control

The opportunity

We would love to hear from you if you have a PhD and postdoctoral research experience; an emerging publication history in high quality academic journals; and research interests which align with this area of strategic priority – particularly if you already hold an external fellowship that can be transferred to us.

In keeping with our commitment to equality and diversity, we encourage applications from all sections of the community, particularly those who can support our Athena SWAN activity, which inspires the advancement and representation of women in higher education. 

You’ll be rewarded with:

  • Growth of your research portfolio
  • Reduced teaching load and limited administrative duties over the initial years of your Fellowship
  • Support through our academic career development framework to meet your training needs and enhance your effectiveness – allowing you to be ready for promotion within 5-years of your appointment
  • Mentoring, to help you establish a balance of research, teaching, knowledge exchange and citizenship responsibilities while enhancing your leadership qualities to support your long-term career.

* Your Fellowship will normally be at lecturer level (exceptionally, at senior lecturer (Grade 9) (£51,630 - £58,089) where you have a strong track record in research leadership) for 5 years, with the expectation that you’ll meet our promotion criteria within that period and be transferred to senior lecturer (or, where you’ve been appointed as a senior lecturer, Reader) level.
