The role

The Department of Civil Engineering at the University of Bristol is looking to recruit a Lecturer/Senior Lecturer/Associate Professor in Structures.  The Department is a part of the School of Civil, Mechanical &  Aerospace Engineering, renowned for delivering both high quality teaching and world-class research.  The role is based on research, teaching &  administration.

Outstanding candidates with a strong academic and/or industrial background in research, potentially with industry experience or a track record of close collaboration with the engineering industry are encouraged to apply.  You should have a PhD or similar in a subject of relevance to Structures, with expertise, or capable to develop expertise, in experimental methods at large scale, such as research on resilient structures and critical infrastructure networks under multi-hazard/climate change/extreme loads, use of new, sustainable, and low-cost structural materials, and structural health monitoring.

The post comes at an exciting time for the Faculty of Engineering following the successful completion of the £12M National Soil-Foundation-Structure Interaction (SoFSI) Facility as part of the UK Collaboratorium for Research on Infrastructure and Cities (UKCRIC) network. The successful candidate will primarily align and develop their research with UKCRIC and SoFSI activities.  

What will you be doing?

  • You will conduct top class research in experimental testing of large structural systems, seek funding for research and supervise research projects and students.
  • You will deliver teaching of structures at undergraduate and postgraduate levels.
  • You will be involved in academic administration roles supporting the teaching programmes.

You should apply if

  • You are passionate about research in structural engineering, especially experimental across length scales.
  • You are passionate about teaching structures, but you are also open for other teaching civil engineering topics.
  • You have excellent communication skills and can clearly articulate verbally and in writing.
  • You are someone who can get up to speed quickly, is mindful of competing priorities, and can drive activity forward in a sustainable manner.

Other Information

In order to capitalise on opportunities which allow us to grow and fortify our research & empower a suite of progressive and enriched educational offerings, the Faculty is creating a new structure with four Schools (to replace the current two Schools) which will launch formally in August 2023. Each School is designed to have:

  • Coherence with a critical mass of academic capability;
  • A balance of activities with long-term viability;
  • Opportunities for growth & fulfilment of ambition;
  • Simpler structure for clearer decision making, accountability &  communication;
  • Smaller staff groupings (Teams) rather than departments.

Informal enquires are welcome and can be directed to: 

Professor Erdin Ibraim (erdin.ibraim@bristol.ac.uk), Head of Civil Engineering Department

Professor Simon Neild (Simon.Neild@bristol.ac.uk), Head of School, CAME
