The University of Strathclyde in Glasgow possesses a large internationally rated Engineering Faculty with a proud history of successful joint ventures with industrial and enterprise partners. As part of the University’s strategic development the National Manufacturing Institute Scotland has been established.
The National Manufacturing Institute Scotland (NMIS) is a bold and ambitious industry-centred project to create an international centre of advanced manufacturing expertise and excellence where industry, academia and public-sector support agencies work together to transform skills, productivity and innovation, making Scotland and the UK a global leader in advanced manufacturing.
NMIS is delivered in partnership through Scottish Enterprise. NMIS is a truly collaborative project, with partners including the Scottish government, Scottish Enterprise, Highlands and Islands Enterprise, Skills Development Scotland, the Scottish Funding Council, Renfrewshire Council and the UK government through the High Value Manufacturing Catapult. The University of Strathclyde is the host University for NMIS, which will link to the wider academic communities in Scotland through the Scottish Research Partnership in Engineering and across the UK High Value Manufacturing Catapult network.
NMIS will encompass a dedicated facility that will house the Manufacturing Skills Academy (MSA), Digital Factory 2050 and the Innovation Collaboratory. Along with this dedicated new facility, existing and developing research centres will also be part of the broader NMIS Group including the Advanced Forming Research Centre (AFRC) and the Lightweight Manufacturing Centre (LMC). The posts advertised here will be based in one of these centres.
The NMIS Machining Team, is seeking to appoint a Manufacturing Engineer to work, lead and manage delivery of high value research and knowledge exchange programmes.
We would like to see candidates with experience in: ·
Advanced Machining Processes. NMIS has several Machining research themes, which combine engineering experience with applied analytical methods, to provide applied scientific understanding of the machining process. These themes include Machining Process and Technology, Digital Machining, Lightweight Machining and Machining Distortion. Using analytical tools, such as sensory tool holders/ fixturing, machining dynamics and finite element analysis, NMIS can predict and optimise machining processes.
With a first degree and PhD in appropriate disciplines, e.g. mechanical or materials engineering; or with a good first degree and relevant work experience, you will have an established track record in providing engineering solutions in an industrial context, and experience in knowledge exchange. We are also interested in candidates with equivalent industrial experience. You will have a background in the machining of metallic and/ or composites components. You will have a good understanding of general engineering principles including, experimentation and data analysis, with a strong materials background in metals or composites. You will have the ability to work autonomously and to plan and prioritise your own workload with minimal inputs from higher management, in addition to experience of project planning and delivery. In addition, you will have excellent communication and interpersonal skills, with a proven ability to interact with a range of stakeholders from industry and academia.
