We are looking to strengthen and add to research critical mass in these areas, with specialisms from candidates preferred in the fields of Power Electronics, Electronic Control, and Electrical Machines or Power Systems.
Alongside research, you will contribute to teaching in at least two of those areas, supervising undergraduate and postgraduate students, and pursuing research and innovation contributing positively to our society. We will support you in developing your research and teaching career and, in turn, you will play a key role in ensuring our continued success and fulfilling our future ambitions.
We are looking for an enthusiastic educator capable of inspiring interest, curiosity and drive for learning in our students. You will have a real passion for the subject matter and be motivated to provide the very best experience for our students using your expertise and skill to ensure all reach their potential.
We are interested in candidates with a PhD and/or postdoctoral experience in the above-mentioned areas. You should have an established reputation for research, with a high quality publication profile and be able to evidence your potentially fundable research ideas. You must also have excellent networking skills, which you use to seek out opportunities for collaboration and citizenship, both internally and externally.Additional information
