We have an exciting opportunity in the Department of Mechanical Engineering for someone with a passion for changing the world and transforming lives through innovative and interdisciplinary research, who will pursue their own independent and original research in a collaborative manner, and with the ability to deliver on grant funding opportunities and provide outputs. As a Research Fellow you will be the Technical Theme Manager for hydrogen and zero carbon fuel combustion technology and conduct in-depth research on state-of-the-art of the technology within your area of expertise. You will form part of a team of Technical Theme Managers (TM) who are required to develop and implement thematic areas of activity associated with the new Translational Energy Research Centre (TERC).

You will join the Energy Institute Team which is an overarching initiative involving cross collaboration with several Sheffield University Faculties, including Energy 2050 and the Translational Energy Research Centre. Its mission is to find low carbon solutions to the world’s biggest energy challenges. Across the University, we have over 300 academics and more than 250 PhD students working on all forms of energy research. As the move to a low carbon economy accelerates, our research will become even more important.

The role provides an excellent opportunity to apply your knowledge of Hydrogen and zero carbon Fuels Combustion and develop your transferable research and leadership skills. If you have a good first degree (or equivalent experience) in Mathematics, Physical Science, or Mechanical and/or Energy Engineering, and a PhD (or equivalent experience) in the subject area or a closely allied discipline, you are encouraged to apply.

Since the role involves significant collaborations with partners, you need to be willing and able to travel potentially overseas. You will be directly involved in training and the development of Health and Safety regulations for the Centre. The TMs will operate the plant (with support from the technical team), analyse results, optimise systems as required and produce experimental reports.

We’re one of the best not-for-profit organisations to work for in the UK. The University’s Total Reward Package includes a competitive salary, a generous Pension Scheme and annual leave entitlement, as well as access to a range of learning and development courses to support your personal and professional development.

We build teams of people from different heritages and lifestyles from across the world, whose talent and contributions complement each other to the greatest effect. We believe diversity in all its forms delivers greater impact through research, teaching and student experience.
