Post of Lecturer, Senior Lecturer or Reader in Materials in Engineering Alloys

Imperial College London - Department of Materials, Faculty of Engineering

Campus: South Kensington and White City

The Department of Materials wishes to appoint up to five new colleagues to join its academic staff in strategic areas. This will be at the level of Lecturer, Senior Lecturer or Reader depending upon experience. The appointed academic will be supported in their development of an internationally-leading experimental research programme relating to the specific themes of:

(1) Engineering Alloys

(2) Ceramics and glasses

(3) Nanomaterials

(4) Functional Materials

(5) Materials for Quantum Technologies

You will join a friendly, dynamic, world-leading Materials department that enjoys an ethos of collaboration. While the posts are distinct, you may have expertise in several themes. You will be expected to attract and supervise PhD students and postdoctoral research staff, publish high-quality papers in appropriate peer-reviewed journals, disseminate research findings at relevant conferences, seek and obtain external research funding, and contribute to the Department’s undergraduate and Master’s teaching programmes. You will also be encouraged to interact with scientists and engineers from other departments across Imperial and have a strong track record and interest in developing external collaborations both nationally (particularly in connection with the Faraday Institution, the Royce Institute, the London Centre for Nanotechnology, and National Labs and Facilities) and internationally.

We invite applications from exceptional candidates with demonstrable expertise relevant to the posts, with complementary research interests to our existing activities. You should hold a PhD (or equivalent) in the physical sciences, engineering, or a related discipline, as well as substantial, relevant postdoctoral experience. You will have (or have demonstrated a strong potential to develop) an international reputation, an outstanding publication record, evidence of securing research funding and an aptitude for inspiring undergraduate students.

The appointee will be expected to plan, direct and undertake the implementation of research activities and programmes of outstanding quality, international repute and innovation in any area within Engineering Alloys and Metallurgy. They will also be expected to generate income from external sources to support their own research programme and to develop collaborative programmes with other academics within the Department, across other research centres and institutes across the College and other departments within the College. They will also be expected to advance the reputation of the Department of Materials and the College by disseminating their research though publications in international peer-reviewed journals and presentations at international conferences.

Imperial College is committed to building a supportive, inclusive and highly motivated staff community, reflected in the Department of Materials and College receiving Silver Athena Swan awards. We support our staff in their work life balance with a full range of benefits, including flexible work patterns.

These posts are permanent and available immediately.
