Look to the future with a university that will champion your ambition.

Have you got a passion for developing practical noise control measures? Can you share your knowledge and problem solving approach with enthusiasm to a wide ranging audience? Then we have a great opportunity for you. The University of Southampton is a unique place in which to explore what you are capable of. Inspiring our clients with a range of solutions in engineering and acoustics, we open up a wealth of opportunities for technology transfer from the research groups of the Faculty to industry and government bodies.

We know what it takes to create an exceptional customer experience. We underpin our flair for engineering design with the latest research findings which you are likely to be involved with along with some delivery of teaching to our undergraduate students. We have a team ethos and enjoy a collaborative team-spirit in which our colleagues support one another in a variety of projects enabling development opportunities in many different fields. This progressive approach plays a vital role in maintaining our reputation for shaping knowledge in a wide range of areas and whilst your focus will be on the transportation industries (automotive, marine, rail and aerospace) we know you will be diversifying the NVH aspects into the sound quality of other products. 

To make the most of this opportunity, you will need to be PhD qualified, or have a relevant professional qualification and experience in the field of noise and vibration and have a degree in either mechanical engineering, acoustics or related disciplines. You will be passionate about working in partnership with our clients to share expertise in measuring noise and vibration along with applying numerical and analytical models to problems in engineering acoustics. It goes without saying that you will need great communication skills and a 'can do' attitude and a real flair for engineering design and functionality. Ideally, you will have some experience of teaching but what's more important is the enthusiasm to engage our students and we will help you develop the skills to deliver a great lecture.

In turn, we will help you find the ideal work/life balance, with a generous benefits package that also includes a contributory pension scheme, competitive holiday allowance, subsidised health and fitness facilities, a cycle-to-work scheme and a range of discounts, this is a place where you are sure to excel.
