The Department of Engineering and Technology houses two EPSRC Centres of Excellence (Ion Beam Centre, IBC and Centre for Precision Technologies, CPT) and several other research centres and institutes. The EPSRC IBC studies the interaction of energetic particles with matter and feeds into developments in nuclear materials, semiconductors, and nanotechnology. The CPT is known for its innovation in measurement techniques and application of novel additive manufacturing technologies for applications including medical implants and aeroengines. We are also an EPSRC doctoral training partner in Materials. Our Institute of Railway Research, IRR has helped to improve the design and safe operation of railway vehicles and track including key performance aspects such as suspension design, wheel-rail contact, traction, and braking.
As part of our continued investment programme in staff and facilities, we seek two more ambitious, successful researchers to join our mechanical engineering team. Our focus this time is on excellent candidates in areas related to design, dynamics, solids, and engineering materials, but outstanding researchers in other fields will be considered. The successful candidates will be supported to grow their research careers. They will also be expected to develop their teaching capabilities, both within their discipline as well as outside their immediate specialism within the wider Mechanical subject area.
From September 2022, the Department introduced a new teaching portfolio referred to as EnABLE (Engineering in an Activity Based Learning Environment) which is an eclectic blend of active learning methods including Problem-, Project- and Design-Based Learning and techniques known as CDIO (Conceive Design Implement and Operate).
Applicants must have a doctoral degree and outstanding research track record in engineering or a closely related field. Excellent teaching and communication skills are also essential. You must demonstrate a strong commitment and be qualified to teach a wide range of undergraduate and postgraduate modules. Ability to advance and teach the theory, methods, tools, and practices on all levels of the undergraduate and postgraduate curriculum of mechanical engineering is required. A keen interest in and commitment to the application of novel pedagogical methods to support our EnABLE delivery style is essential.
The School is committed to Athena SWAN principles and the promotion of equality and diversity and is proud to hold a Bronze Athena SWAN Award.
