The School of Engineering is seeking to recruit a talented and enthusiastic Assistant Professor in Predictive Modelling on the traditional research and teaching pathway. We are looking for someone who can help us strengthen and broaden our research activities, while also contributing to teaching of the newly established MSc in Predictive Modelling and Scientific Computing to start in the 2023-2024 academic year.
We are open to appointments in any aspect of predictive modelling and scientific computing research consistent with the activities of the Warwick Centre for Predictive Modelling and the facilities available in the School and the University. Those with backgrounds in mathematical and statistical foundations of predictive modelling, or in in its application to physics-based uncertainty quantification (for example aligned with existing WCPM strength areas such as continuum solid or fluid mechanics, environmental sustainability, energy, materials science) are particularly encouraged to apply. The appointee will complement existing activity in the School or establish new activity, and it is expected the research will have a computational focus. Consideration will be given to alignment with existing research facilities, including those in the University’s Research Technology Platforms.
You will have a PhD in a relevant discipline (e.g. physical, mathematical or engineering sciences) and must be able to demonstrate the capability to establish an independent research activity which has the ambition and potential to become internationally leading. You will initiate, develop and deliver high quality research, publish top-tier journal papers and demonstrate the potential for impact from your research.
You will be appointed for a probationary period (usually five years) during which there is a reduced teaching and administration load to enable you to establish your research group. Successful completion of probation will coincide with promotion to a permanent Associate Professor position. You are also expected to have the relevant experience and skills to deliver teaching and assessment in Mechanical, Materials and Process Engineering, and you may teach on a range of taught programmes at undergraduate, specialised masters, and/or degree apprenticeship levels, with a particular focus on and responsibility for the MSc in Predictive Modelling and Scientific Computing. You are expected to engage with higher education pedagogy and be willing to develop novel teaching methods, embracing changes in teaching technology and expectations.
All applicants must include: (a) a curriculum vitae which includes a full publications list; (b) an outline of no more than two pages showing their research vision and plans for grant capture over the next five years; and (c) a one-page statement demonstrating their teaching expertise and interests. Attachments other than those requested should not be provided, and applications submitted without the required documents will not be progressed.
Applications from candidates in groups underrepresented in the Engineering sector are particularly welcome. The University aims to promote work life balance for all employees and the School of Engineering will consider a range of possible flexible working arrangements in order to recruit the best candidate.
