Lecturer/Senior Lecturer/Reader in Electrically Powered Aircraft and Operations

University of Glasgow – College of Science and Engineering - James Watt School of Engineering

The James Watt School of Engineering (JWSE) at the University of Glasgow is an energetic and growing international centre of excellence for Engineering research and teaching. The School leads research in Aerospace Sciences; Autonomous Systems; Biomedical Engineering; Electronics and Nanoscale Engineering; Infrastructure and Environment; and Systems, Power and Energy. We have 150 academics and 168 post-doctoral researchers supported by 61 technicians and 27 professional services staff. Currently we have 450 research students working towards doctorates.

We are seeking to fill a position for an ambitious academic to join the James Watt School of Engineering in the broad area of electrically powered aircraft and operations. The field includes novel design techniques, performance and dynamics, safety issues, air traffic management, integration of manned and unmanned systems. Applications around multidisciplinary optimization of aircraft configurations and operations for efficiency, safety, cost and environmental impact are particularly welcomed, including multi-agent systems modelling, knowledge-based systems, stochastic modelling, measurement and analysis. 

The post holder will join a vibrant environment with world leading groups in Aerospace Vehicle Design, Flight Simulation and Autonomous Systems. The James Watt School of Engineering hosts fundamental research that is developed with the ambition to lead to industrial and academic impact. We expect the successful academic to complement and synergise with existing activities and to develop a network of collaborations locally (across the School of Engineering and the University) as well as to liaise with industry to translate their research to the highest impact.
