CEAC is internationally recognised for its thriving world-class research along with the quality of its graduates and record of graduate employability. The Department emphasises the close relationship between chemical engineering and chemistry in both its teaching and research. Principal research areas are in Polymers, Advanced Materials, Catalysis and Bioenergy, encompassed within our two EPS Research Institutes; Aston Institute of Materials Research (AIMR) and the Energy and Bioproducts Research Institute (EBRI). AIMR undertakes cutting-edge multidisciplinary research in biomaterials, polymers, inorganics, nanomaterials and bitumen. EBRI, with its own multi-million-pound premises on campus, focuses on biomass, bioenergy and catalysis research for a sustainable future.
The successful candidate will have substantial experience, demonstrable teaching excellence and a proven research track in the fields of sustainability and sustainable development, engineering for sustainable development, the circular economy, sustainable energy and energy systems, energy efficiency and decarbonisation, pathways to net zero, materials sustainability, and life cycle analysis. The role holder will also take responsibility for delivering high-quality teaching and will contribute to the planning, design, development and delivery of materials on our growing portfolio of programmes within the School of Infrastructure & Sustainable Engineering.
The successful candidate must hold a first degree in Environmental Engineering, Chemical Engineering or an appropriate Engineering or Science related discipline and a PhD in a cognate Engineering field. The successful candidate will participate fully in the teaching duties and research activity of the department, primarily in the MSc in Sustainable Engineering programme, and will be expected to lead and contribute to a number of related specialist modules at both post-graduate and undergraduate levels.
