Lecturer/Senior Lecturer/Reader in Smart Sustainable and Resilient Infrastructure

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 smart, sustainable, and resilient infrastructure. The field includes construction automation, high performance construction materials, advanced manufacturing of structures, lifecycle structural health monitoring, and data driven approaches for structural optimization, among others. We are particularly interested in research that cuts across traditional discipline boundaries. For example, the interface between data science and sustainable infrastructure, sensing and data analysis to support infrastructure modelling, and computational modelling of sustainable construction materials are some of the exciting frontiers we are keen to support. 

The post holder will join a vibrant environment with world leading groups in Computational Engineering, Water and Environment, Smart Infrastructure, and Geotechnics. 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 and clinicians to translate their research to the highest impact.
